Dak, dak, dak. Stallman told the European Commission that 

"the lack of a more flexible license for MySQL will present considerable
barriers to a new forked development path for MySQL"

http://keionline.org/sites/default/files/ec_letter_mysql_oct19.pdf

Read it again, silly dak:

THE LACK OF A MORE FLEXIBLE LICENSE FOR MYSQL WILL PRESENT CONSIDERABLE
BARRIERS TO A NEW FORKED DEVELOPMENT PATH FOR MYSQL.

I've been telling all along that the GPL is unlawful anticompetitive
conspiracy blatantly violating Article 81 EC.

Thanks a bunch to Richard Stallman for openly admiting it.
