   Web services are going to replace software distributed on media.
   If anyone can use GPL software to offer a service to the public
   without having to share modifications, that blows free software
   right out of the water.

If you provide it on a website, then it isn't very in-house, it is
just pure distribution, and the GPL already handles that.
