  Why Human Rights Requires Free Software
Subject:   Brett, your objection is pointless
Date:   2002-10-12 17:50:13

Response to: Human rights require truly free software, not the FSF's "Free" (Not!) software

Your objection is to the use of the GPL in commercial software.


Andy Oram's entire article is about non-commercial software for human rights workers.


Thus, your objection is pointless.


Further, every license restricts the rights of those who accept it. For this reason, your final sentence (which finally gets around to the issue at hand) does not reach a valid conclusion.
