No offense, but you might want to consider using one of the many
licenses out there [1].  They are much more well understood and have
been well thought out.  Your license may leave out things that become
important in the future.  Based on what your license is trying to say,
you may want to consider the MIT/X license, BSD (w/o advertising
clause), or public domain.

IANAL, but I have seen enough discussions about license issues becuase
someone wrote their own and forgot something to think that it is usually
a Bad Idea(TM).
