GPL cranks have been predicting the proprietary licensing model's demise
forever. Guess who's winning.
Be sure to let me know when it happens.
Stay tuned to the SFC v. Best Buy litigation schedule -- you'll
know when it happens:
DEFENDANT VERSA TECHNOLOGY, INC.’S ANSWER WITH JURY DEMAND
FIFTEENTH AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (ILLEGAL, UNCONSCIONABLE AND CONTRARY TO
On information and belief, Defendant alleges that Plaintiffs’ claims are
barred, limited and/or excluded on the grounds that the alleged license
at issue in this case and/or certain provisions contained therein are
illegal, unconscionable and barred by public policy as well as by
statutory and case law.
People choose to deal with companies because they perceive value in
it, such as available support and ubiquity. People choose the GPL
because they want users of their software to have the same freedom
they themselves had, and don't want to help others who would choose
to deny those freedoms to their own users.
