GSD License*

PREAMBLE

The GSD (Get Stuff Done) License is a free, open source, copyright free license for software and other kinds of works.

This license exists to promote productivity.  Some licenses try to provide rights, but deny you the right of removing all rights to whatever from whatever, or whatever.  They can be very confusing.

This license is not about rights, but about productivity so that you can get stuff done.  If reading the rest of this license does not make you more productive, please consider using another license.
