Just FYI, from what I read it seems like CPOL isn't compatible with GNU GPL:
- So if you have a GNU GPL dependency it might be illegal to use a CPOL license on your project,
- and it might be illegal for anyone who uses a (viral) GNU GPL dependency to use your work under a CPOL license.
license compatibility - Can I use CodeProject code in a GPL project? - Open Source Stack Exchange[^]

Quote:
CPOL is not an open source license according to the OSI definition. It has a clause which does not allow it to be used for any purpose as mandated by the GPL or MIT license:
Quote:
You agree not to use the Work for illegal, immoral or improper purposes, or on pages containing illegal, immoral or improper material.


If that's true it makes CPOL more restrictive than BSD, can anybody weigh in on this? Was this intentional?
