Re: help with crafting proper license header for a dual-licensing project

As many people have pointed out, I realize I should be saying
"proprietary" when I used the word "commercial". I also realize that
the GPL does not preclude "commercial" == "for profit" usage. I was
merely echoing the terminology used by Trolltech. I do not condone it
If you use the word "proprietary", you are merely echoing the
terminology used/popularised by Microsoft - do you remember their
marketing slogan "Unix is proprietary, Windows is open"?
If you use the word "proprietary" correctly, then linux is proprietary.
"proprietary" means "has an owner" (which ALL copyrighted works do). The
opposite of "proprietary" is "Public Domain".
Thanks as always for all your feedback.
You're welcome :-)
