BSD-license can be revoked by the copyright holder you know.

This is not true. None of the standard BSD licenses are revokable.




Yes they are, any licenses are revokable. The GPL as well.

I could release software under GPL, not accept any patches, see the software grow and 2-3 years from now when a lot of people are using and depending on the software, bam I revoke the GPL from all previous versions and impose a special EULA in its stead. I can because I am copyright holder.




Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
