So CC0 is not always applicable, this license will most likely be avoided by the corpo world.

To quote the licesne text:

Quote:Should any part of the Waiver for any reason be judged legally invalid or ineffective under applicable law, then the Waiver shall be preserved to the maximum extent permitted taking into account Affirmer's express Statement of Purpose.

So that's exactly what it attempts to solve. Sure, there are ways to restore it, but it's still better than UNLICENSE in this regard.

There are anti-capitalist, non-comercial, racially motivated, etc. licenses, but they usually get very vauge, and are obviously not free software, so there's less interest in that. When I work on something a bit more serious, I usually use GPL, since even if a Corp decided to use it, they (ideally) wouldn't just get all the work for free, but any work they do would be shared back, whereby they "repay" the developer and the users, in some sense.
