Introducing WTFNMFPLv3


For a long time I’ve been using WTPFL as the licensing-model for allmost all of my published work.

Just recently I was introduced to WTFNMFPL, which added a clause for not my fault to WTPFL, which is just that more explicit regarding liability issues.

But wait … DO THE FUCK YOU WANT … in capital letters screams for DO WHATEVER THE FUCK, which is kinda not caught by the copyright of the license itself - which was proclaimed in this interesting article. Therefore WTFPLv3 was published.

To take these both approaches a bit further, why not combine them into one single license: I introduce you to WTFNMFPLv3.

Trivia: I know, the versioning for WTFNMFPL is not consistent here, but I wanted to link this milestone to v3 of WTPFL, hence making it WTFNMFPLv3.

DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO BUT IT'S NOT MY FAULT PUBLIC LICENSE
                    Version 3, January 2016

   DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO BUT IT'S NOT MY FAULT PUBLIC LICENSE
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

  0. You just DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO.

  1. Do not hold the author(s), creator(s), developer(s) or
     distributor(s) liable for anything that happens or goes wrong
     with your use of the work.

I even took it one step further: fuck the by section - DO THE FUCK YOU WANT!
