The whole point of a license is as a place for you to spell out your requirements for others to use/redistribute the software. If you want them to share their improvements, that's exactly the sort of thing that belongs in the license. It sounds odd to me to use a license allowing others to keep their improvements closed, and then to shame them for actually following the license. -- Bobby Bingham
