What does this have to do with free software?
Free software licences should not contaminate other software, remember?
Why should this software's licence, not directly involved in the
Software patents make software less free.
To me, this does not justify producing non-free software as part of
action against them. It is very easy to say that swpat are evil and we
must fight them. It is easy but stupid to fight them by destroying
free software in swpat lands.
My Opinion Only and possibly not of any group I know.
