bsd vs gpl

i've not paid much attention to licensing philosophy i the past,
because for me it was always windoze vs the goodguys.

however, recently i've become aware of there being a chasm within the
goodguys in that the bsd attitude is do what you want as long as you
give credit to the creator, whereas the gpl folks say do what you want
as long as you keep it free.

is this a fair summation?

do people here have any thoughts on the two different licenses?
