> Granted the license is WTFPL but does that include taking over the IP itself?

IANAL but "do whatever the fuck you want to" would seem to include literally everything including taking over the IP.




Yeah I get the "do whatever the fuck you want" but in a legal sense I wasn't sure that could (or did) include actual ownership. I thought that had more to do with copyright and any other IP transferring. Then again I also said I had no idea :)


The more I think about this license, the more I wonder if it's even legally enforceable. How do you enforce a license whose only terms are that it has no terms?


The WTFPL's own website mentions that it's never been tested in court.
