Re: I have a better remedy...

So, basically you are sayng that you want the freedom to take freedom from others?

Or you dont care if you give the freedom for others to do the same?

The copyleft "restrictions" are there to specifically enforce decent behavior out of people who do such things.

But I suppose its fine as YOU have total freedom even if someone else doesnt. One rule for you, and another rule for the others.

You know that YOU are not free to do many things in society yes? And you agree that nobody should be above the law? Then again maybe you are of the opinion that we should be free from laws as they restrict your freedom to do what you want to others including making your own laws that they must follow lest you retaliate. I know a type of person that thinks that way and I'm glad that the GPL is doing its best to prevent such people from affecting computer users in general.
