“I’ve been told that VCs prefer the GPL over more permissive licenses because the GPL protects against forks, thereby protecting the VC’s investments. I haven’t heard of (m)any OSS vendors changing their license to satisfy a VC’s requirement.”

Are you kidding me?  The couple of OSS startups that I have dealt with will not breathe air unless they get the OK from VC!
