When you insert a section, it just means the content you selected is now partitioned off and assigned the attributes you specified in the Insert Section window.

This section below is in two columns with a gray background, because I used the Columns and Background tabs to apply those settings.

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT. The very idea that we shouldn't enforce the GPL just doesn't make sense to me because it suggests that the text of the license is watery and unimportant. I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
