I guess I just don't understand the difference between *GPL and BSD licenses. 
What do you mean by hijacking in this context (i read about turning it into 
some proprietary form). I thought GPL wouldn't project against those things 
and BSD being more strict would protect against it?

Got a site where I can read the full GPL and BSD licenses? I think I've had 
the wrong picture of GPL and BSD all along. I better set that straight now 
before we go anywhere else
