If you are talking about grsecurity,

Had more personally significant cases in mind, not GrSec per se, but GrSecurity is an example, on the contract side.

That said, wrt "abusive corporates", I'd put GrSec more on the /victim/ side, and I have some sympathy for them, but that's another discussion.

the contract from 2017 was on their website, is now on archive.org but the current version is not public:


That looks like the kind of side-agreement that would be good to clearly make impermissible or impossible to hold people to, while also wanting to avail of a copyleft licence - to me.

Personally, I want a copyleft for the 'gitlab/github/gogs' era: Source must be made available, unless you're on a desert island or there is a credibly physical risk of imprisonment or harm to individuals by disclosing their identity.

I think that would depend on the protocol used and that many of them would have room for extensions that could include instructions for obtaining source code.

If you add an extension, how do you know the other supports that extension and showing it to the user? How do you show the user "interacted" with your software? Seems unreliable / risky / unlikely to achieve the goal, if tested.
