I like how Multics License was intended not only to give everyone permission to use the software free, but also to care about brands of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and BULL HN Information Systems Inc. It seems to be a quite underestimated way of trademark protection!

There is also a requirement to spread the historical background of glorious cooperation of MIT and Group BULL, and I also like it! It's like exchanging: we give you free soft and you tell our story to others.

And now just think about it: what if free licenses have a huge potential of influence to the information that surround us, generate the discourse and create worlds?
