Do not use the Android clipboard for passwords, logins, card numbers, or any kind of sensitive data.

To developers of FOSS:

Please do not use Creative Commons/CC licenses (other than CC0) for your code! Some CC licenses are incompatible with things people may do with your code, like package it for distributions, derive new works from it, or even sell it on discs at loss to schools. The GNU GPL, BSD, MIT, etc. licenses are much better for software.

CC licenses don't target software, meaning using one could cause serious legal trouble for you.
