well, you have to decide what do you want the license to do for you.

if your goals for the code are in anyway aligned with stallman's 4 freedoms:
then the GPL is the way to go.

on the other hand, if you are interested in making it as easy as 
possible for other people or business entities to use your code however 
they like, you could use BSD/Apache; but also consider putting it in the 
public domain [esp. as you say there is no money to be made].
