GNU, GPL, Open Source The world is slowly and surely going crazy. I'm sure of it now. The US copyright lobby has officially gone totally and utterly nuts. Get this: they are trying to lobby the US government to equate encouraging the use of Free and open source software to undermining intellectual property rights, and to weakening the software industry. I wish I was making this stuff up.

So where, in your opinion, is the problem? In giving stuff away for free? Or could it be in the underlying system?

It's almost the same effect capitalism had on industrialisation, instead of machines making everyone's life easier, they made some people amazingly rich, and other people die of hunger.

Morality != capitalism, if they don't meet, morality isn't the problem, capitalism is.
