>From the article:

  During Munich's multiyear migration from proprietary software (read:
  Microsoft), the city's administration decided to go with LibreOffice over
  OpenOffice back in 2012. (One cited reason was "the greater flexibility of
  the project regarding consumption of open source licenses.")

It's hilarious when copyleft licensing gets credit for the flexibility of
permissive licensing.
