People freely modifying copyright licenses... 🤦🏻‍♀️

Guys, seriously, a license is a legal document. Legal documents are almost like code: you *must* write them with precision and taking the legal framework into account. Most of the modifications I see are well-intended, but open lots of cans of worms...

I'm happy to help with anyone who needs to modify/write a license. IANAL, but I'm Foreign Rights Manager at a publishing house and this stuff is a huge part of my job.
