Company: "We don't like the GPL, it's far too long and complicated. We're just using the short & simple BSD license."

Company: "To proceed, please accept our huge CLA in our SAP cla-assistant"

Just to be clear: IMHO the GPL is just fine and, unless you want to commercially relicense my contribution, covers a lot of things usually found in CLAs as well, such as patent licenses and how to regain usage permissions after license violations.

@schmittlauch I think you know, why exactly cooperations don't like the GPL.
Complexity and length isn't it :)
