Total self interest here ... when was the first Floss type licence?
I think it's reasonable to assume that most of the first FLOSS
licenses were basic "do whatever you want with this software" now sort
of "BSD type" licenses.
There were "proto-GPL" copyleft text floating around in the seventies
I believe but it was not really a license. It was more like "in order
to use this software, you must join my software sharing commune."
