GNU, GPL, Open Source "There are both popular and unpopular ways of circumventing the Free Software Foundation's General Public License. A very unpopular method, we've come to find out, is via promises of patent protection for users of specific software. However, if you're looking to leverage Free Software without completely fulfilling the requirements of the license, a better method would be to exploit the software as a service loophole, which the latest draft of the GPL3 just legalized."

Or is it that RMS is afraid of offending Google?

Ha! Heh heh, hehehe. Oh, that's a good one. ;) RMS may be a lot of things, but even folks who don't agree with him will admit that the guy has been doggedly sticking to his guns, regardless of who gets offended, for something like, I dunno, maybe 2 and a half decades?
