thing here...what I'm stressing is my right to earn money of my
hard work and to keep that work away from prying eyes if I *chose*
Yes., your rights are to be respected as long as such an act respects
another man's freedom. Suppose, you create some xyz software and sell
to Mr.zyx. You have decided to keep your code with you. Now.,
supposing Mr.zyx dosent like your service and wants to switch over to
someother programmer. He wont be able to do so. In such a case he has
to abandon his production using your `xyz' software and has to hire a
programmer to write something else. This is a restriction of the
freedom of Mr.zyx.
Now., Mr.zyx has paid for your software, and should have the freedom
to do anything with it. So., it would be a freedom restricting act if
you put him under some silly licensing terms.
One individual's right to earn should not be by the means of
restricting the freedom of another.
Free the code, free the user.
