GPL License

description

Do you realize that GPL-type licenses are explicitly banned from the WP7 Marketplace (http://www.osnews.com/story/24433/GPL-like_Licenses_Explicitly_Banned_from_WP7_Marketplace)?
 
I would like to use this library but, unfortunately, under the current license I don't think anyone will be able to use it while staying in the rules of the Marketplace or the legal guidelines of the GPL itself.
 
If you really intend people to be able to legally use your code, I recommend an approved, non-viral license such as MS-PL or BSD.

For me the GPL license is a deal breaker too. Any chance you could change the license?

Any update on whether the license might change on this to a more public license that will allow the community to use it with the WP7 marketplace?
