GNU, GPL, Open Source "The Free Software Foundation is up in arms over Apple's iTunes Store Terms of Service, suggesting that these terms fundamentally conflict with the terms of the GNU Public License. The foundation has warned Apple that a version of GNU Go distributed by the App Store makes Apple liable to comply with GPL terms that allow free sharing of code, but warned that its 'Usage Rules' violate those terms. The fallout could potentially affect any app that uses GPLed code."

Well, you wrote that you disliked it, which may or may not imply that you find offense with it. Anyways, I don't see the point of being hostile towards a licence since they're just that, licences. If you are angry that code X is licenced under Y, then your beef is really with the code author who chose to licence it as such, and not with the licence itself which is just an agreement.
