We are considering MIT or Apache v2, what do you recommend?

apache2 because of the patent protections.

Straight question for the uninformed (me):

Could you (or anyone else) elaborate on MIT vs Apache V2 and patent protection?

OK - found this on Quora [1] that gave me some idea.

I asked before as googling because there are often very well-informed software legal opinions on HN.
