Re: The Free Software Foundation's new Cisco suit!
It's far less restricted than any proprietary license, yet i see more people complain about the GPL for being not "free" enough than they do about actually closed licenses. It's up to the develop of the software and his decision on HIS creation should be legally binding, providing it doesn't restrict the rights of the user in other ways.

Also, let companies do closed-source innovation from open source libs/programs! If the open-source one is better, or simply because it's free, people will use it anyway. It's called C-O-M-P-E-T-I-T-I-O-N.
Anyway, it's not up to you what Developer Y does with Developer X's library, it's up to X. Whether he wants to charge €1000000 for it or give it for free.
Saying that you "could care less" about something is implying that you DO care about it, regardless of common usage.
Using it as a way of saying you don't care is simply wrong.
