Also, it effectively requires a fee for use, unless you consider the
time of the person who uses it to have no value. [same issue.]
Then again, maybe there's nothing wrong with open source software which
has a usage fee? After all, there's no specific language prohibiting that
(as long as the software can be distributed for free). [Which is to say,
if this license is Open Source then software which requires a usage fee
should also be considered Open Source.]
