I'd agree with you if I could find the clause in osl-2.1 which states
The closest I can find are 10) and 11).
10) is clearly limited to patent suits that claim that the software in
question is illegal. I don't see that losing the right to distribute
illegal software is anything like a de facto carte blanche license to
do anything they like.
11) Says that you can't sue someone in a location where they're not
active. I don't see that this requirement is anything like a de facto
carte blanche license to do anything they like, either.
Maybe you can point me at the clause or section that I'm missing?
If this is covered some previous post, just identify that post so I can
unambiguously find it.
