"not invented here"; people writing their own licenses, or modifying
them, instead of using existing, well-understood licenses.  It's a cause
of license proliferation, which makes it harder for everyone to understand
free software licensing, and very often causes unexpected (and usually
unintended) problems, such as those of this license.  It's almost always
better to use an existing license than to make a new one.
