Damn it SAM

    I've been using WTFPL for quite a few projects myself as well. Perfect for when you don't care about any IP, but want to have at least one copy out there with your name on it.

    I prefer the DBAD license myself.

    Do whatever you want with my code, just Don't Be A Dick!

    I don't know man, I have never compiled huge software, but as far as github is concerned , I think you can put it just like that. The above one I saw in TOra, an open source PLSQL IDE maybe @corjaantje and @tecs can shed more light on this..

    It's quite simple - you either create a text file in the root of your project repo with the contents of the licence (http://www.wtfpl.net/txt/copying/), or you add a comment to the beginning of every source file with something like this:

    * Project name
    * Your name
    * This code is distributed under the WTFPL License. For more info check:
    * http://www.wtfpl.net/txt/copying/

    As the latter might be a bit spammy for bigger projects, I personally use it for single file projects.

    For compiled distribution you just bindle the license text file alongside your binaries.

    When using this type of permissive licence, for a nice finishing touch (or lack of) omit the "copyright" part.
