I'm afraid I'll just be boring and make a recommendation:

In short, it protects your source files and requires modifications to be contributed on a file-by-file basis. The "downside" as far as freedom-restrictions-or-whatever-you-wanna-call-it is that one can "get around" it by creating new source files and putting all their changes in there.

But still, it provides some copyleft without the full, uh, impact, of LGPL.
