That is very different from the GPL.  I'd list the differences, 
but they would boil down to "all of the GPL except for clause 2a
and a bit of clause 1", so there's not much point in that.  Just
read the thing.

Please don't confuse people about the GPL by misrepresenting it
this way.  There's already enough confusion about it.
