No, maybe not. But doesn't the fact that we even discuss this prove
beyond any doubt that providing free non-profit software to others as a
service is ***WAY*** too complicated at the moment?
I understand the objectives of the GPL, but in practice this is NOT a
good way to solve the problen, IMHO.
If I write a piece of code and give it away to others under the
condition that they in turn keep giving it away for free, why should I
have any more hassle with that?
