If it's open source, no one is ripping it off...

Love how El Reg's shill bought into MongoDBs PR blitz about people using their open source software were somehow 'ripping them off' by following the licensing terms....

MongoDB's failure to figure out a viable business model is not the fault of users. It is not the responsibility of users of open source to fund venture backed startups.

If they wanted to monetize their software, they should have released it under a commercial license, but then they would have had to pay for market acquisition instead of getting it for free from the open source community.....
