The Sleeping Dragon Awakes Reply #50 – 2008-08-06 10:11:07 I don't wish to drag spoon's specific situation out in public, but I am interested in how "free" free software really is.This is what got me thinking...http://www.fsf.org/licensing/essays/free-sw.htmlIn my limited, and probably wrong understanding, isn't the present situation the kind of mess that LGPL is supposed to clear up - LGPL says go ahead - use it as a library - GPL doesn't. ?I wish there was a "do what the **** you like with it" licence! Of course, in reality, if the software author can't afford a lawyer or court case, then that is the licence that people can use the software under. Licenses, like patents, are a waste of time if you can't defend them; better to spend your time/money elsewhere if this is the case. (not in the current case, just a general observation for truly non-commercial activities).Cheers,David.P.S. These are my questions / opinions to provoke an interesting discussion, where I hope I might learn something!
