    Which is the best licence for my web application. GPL

    Hello,

    I have created a CMS application and of course I would like, that people are using it - download it and try it out.

    I just wonder what could be the best licence I could publish it under?

    I thought of a GPL?

    Can, I change the licence type again in a later version?

    I would people to use it for the following reasons:

    - It helps me to find out, if this new CMS has an advantage over other CMSes.
    - It helps me debugging (It should be bug free as much as possible but I am now it the stage of testing.)
    - Developers can add and remove from the code, but not be able to sell it as their own.

    - I would like to know, what I could add to it next to make the CMS attractive to use.
    - Developers can use it for their own projects free of charge and shall be encourage to write modules for it.
    - However, I would like to remain the owner of it.
    - Developers will be able to charge their own clients, for setup, templates, etc, but not the CMS.
    - I would like to protect my project.

    How do I include the licence text and "I agree" button into the web application,so that it is binding?


    Thank you for your help!

    Nobody has answered.

    I have solved it for now by doing as descriped on the GNU website.

    https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html


    I included the licence and my name on every single file of the application.
    I included the licence text for everyone to read within the application,
    and in my setup file I included the typical "I agree" tick the box with a copy of the licence to read.

    I hope someone still will answer to my post, because there are still some unanswered questions.
