[Linux-aus] Chosing an Open Source licence

Hey guys,

Hypothetically, if one were to be trying to decide which OSI Approved 
Open Source licence one might hypothetically wish to apply to one's 
product, where would one go to get a nice side-by-side comparison of the 
various licences? It would be great if there was a site that had some 
Australian legal ideas as well.

Essentially, I'm trying to work out which licence would be the best fit 
for a particular product, based on certain commercial requirements. I 
know I can read each licence, but I Am Not A Lawyer and I'd hate to get 
something wrong. :)

Any tips/suggestions appreciated,
