Now we can discuss the motives of that man if you wish: why may he
want to keep the software proprietary?
(which is slightly off-topic).
Completely off-topic, but anyway:
#1 he/she may have strong POV on development and style of project.
#2 he/she may have plans to sell that piece of software in future.
#3 he/she may have eccentric mind and don't want to share. Oddish, but have chance to be.
i can continue.
Again (out of curiosity), because you can't imagine any reason
they might have or because you have some other proof?
For example - I know them personally.
Sure. and the end user have no say there. no free-will.
Sorry, I can't catch your words. EULA written by the end user? I always
think that EULA's are written by the companies...
Free-will is will to choose. You have will to not agree with EULA and press 'No' 'Quit' in anytime.
Nonetheless, an unconscious free-will assignment is nonsense.
If those clauses included in EULA, it is problems of end-user if he's not
give full attention to what he 'Agree, Continue' :) That's legal education
issue I think.
Unconscious acts often leads to no good.
I don't think the punishment is a strong guarantee.
just my personal point of view.
:) Strong guarantee may give only god. Do you remember '640 kb will be enough for all'?
Never mind. the person who runs the campaign is a native speaker, he'll fix the linguistic issues easily.
Sure. If he will that'll be great.
Regards and long live to Ogg, open-source and open-mind. Oleg
