There is no oshwa license I am aware of. If you want persistence in an
open hardware license, the two options I know of are TAPR OHL and CERN OHL.
In my opinion, the most important message about licensing we should
convey is this: a license *is* what allows the design to be shared in
the way we want. The default for copyright in many jurisdictions is "all
rights reserved", i.e. if I find a design on the web, in principle I
don't have the right to copy it, modify it and redistribute it. A
license is the tool we use to grant those permissions.
