LWN has an interesting article "Permissive licenses, community, and
copyleft" <https://lwn.net/Articles/660428/>. It is about a talk by HP's
Chief Technology Officer Martin Fink:

  He then ended the session with an extended appeal to move the
  open-source software industry away from permissive licenses like
  Apache 2.0 and toward copyleft licenses like the GPL. Not doing so, he
  said, puts the FOSS community at just as much risk of collapse as
  license proliferation threatened to in years past.
