According to Kirk McKusick at BSDCon 1999:
The way it was characterized politically, you had copyright, which is what the big companies use to lock everything up; you had copyleft, which is free software's way of making sure they can't lock it up; and then Berkeley had what we called ‘copycenter’, which is ‘take it down to the copy center and make as many copies as you want.

Besides the more well-known Creative Commons License and the GNU GPL, there is also the BSD License.
