It seems that the logic here is: code for OpenOffice and you are contributing
to both projects, code for LibreOffice and you only contribute to one :)

I would say, If you are adding to ooo, you are not only contributing
to both, but also to ibm\s fork and any other fork.
but seriously, if you are the original author you can in theory apply
your patch to both, or publish your code standalone so it can be used
by everyone.


Also, seeing what Apple, and Microsoft do to public domain code (DRM
and lockdown) makes me want to not allow them to profit from my work,
at least if I am doing it on my free time.

Sure If i am being paid to work on something by a university or
research grant it might make sense to be public domain or Apache
licensed.

Of course, this discussion has been done a million times and everyone
has their preference, I am not going to convince anyone here.
