Which of these licenses is the most restrictive in its licensing terms?


I'm setting up a new project and I want to choose a license that is as limiting as possible while still being open source.

  • Apache License 2.0
  • Artistic License/GPL
  • Eclipse Public License 1.0
  • GNU General Public License v2
  • GNU General Public License v3
  • GNU Lesser General Public License
  • MIT License
  • Mozilla Public License 1.1
  • New BSD License
