This is a bit off toplic, 
we do rant about licenses here, but in the context of
the dotgnu project.
I would post this to gnu.misc.dicuss.
GPl is for software, GDL is for documentation.

If you want to protect you ads, maybe putting them
under the gnu documentation license would give your
competition the ability to create derived works from
your ads?

I have always wondered how advertising for GPled
software should work. I think suse and redhat dont
give away thier ads, they spend alot of money on them.
