Discussion on: Has Open Source Licensing Reached Its End of Life?

There is a distinction between the license to attribute to your code/project and any commercialization of efforts around building software. Open source is NOT a business model, so I guess I would ask a different question - how could you make money from the problems you are trying to solve, and how does open source help enable that?

Open source licensing has been working great for the past 20+ years and I do not believe it needs changing. That said, the OSI welcomes dialog and discussion on this topic, so if you feel strongly that is where perhaps you can engage.
