you're stimulating a huge flamewar ;)


gpl:
 use it and change it, but if you sell you changed version, make the
 source available under gpl.
lgpl:
 same as gpl, but  used, usually, for libs. If your code links against
 lgpl you don't need to release it under lgpl, you can use closed 
 license. But if you change the library , is the same as gpl.
bsd:
 same as gpl, but you do not need to show the changed sources. You 
 just need to give credit to the older author.
