Discussion on: Why a "Standard Source Available License" doesn't exist yet?

I think this is a good idea, but I'd make the baseline lower: add one more license that just adds an extra layer of responsibility to developers. That doesn't mean the other licenses have to start from that one and build upon it, but that would mean there's a "free work, when I can, If I want to" version of what you propose too. Basically an MIT license with a sprinkle of liability.
