In practice BSD creates more restrictions on everyone.  Software owners have 
taken advantage of hardware production bottlenecks and warped our laws to 
impose on us all, especially developers.  

Non free software developers are even more restricted than ordinary users.  
The restrictions on users apply to developers too, but they also have to sign 
non disclosure agreements that tie them down even further.  When asked to 
liberate code, big companies like Microsoft and Apple always say they can't 
because some of it is owned by other companies.  The more power owners have, 
the worse they will treat the few developers they actually hire.  

Please don't use pushover free licenses for new software and be careful what 
software you invest your time in.  New "BSD" licensed software is a gift to 
our oppressors.  Please try to duplicate the functions in copyleft software.
