For me, seeing the effects of "people chose to retain copyright" is why I am
now joining a"community of people who are by choice giving up copyright
Seeing the absolute injustice being put on artists. Seeing corporations
suing little guys for megabucks because of a mistake on the little guys
part. Seeing lawyers and business lump patents, trademarks, and copyright
into one misleading and ambiguous term of "intellectual property" and
misappropriation and abuse of Human Rights. People being bullied and put out
of business because they put a link on their website.
All In the fscking name of getting more money.
As you can see I'm passionate about this "community". I think FSF and Open
Source (my reasons and understanding on this issue are much more than just
these two: this is simplified for this mailing list discussion. I
deliberately make a distinction between the two terms as well. See
I didn't write this, and the first time I read it I didn't agree or
understand it. But after multiple readings, I now agree with most of it) are
the way of the future.
Mmmmmmm. Open Sauce....
