My Take on Software Licenses


I believe in giving back to society, so when I think I′ve created something useful that a) doesn′t compromise anyone′s intellectual property rights (except my own) and b) isn′t something that will make me rich, I′m inclined to give it away. Free.

Unlike some people I know, I do not believe that proprietary software is evil. I am an American and a capitalist; I believe in free enterprise. I believe that those who produce goods and services that help others accomplish their goals are entitled to dictate the terms under which those goods and services are made available, and that the market should and will determine the value of products.
