When pressed by commenters who point Adobe's hypocrisy, McAllister tried to defend his pitiful company with following claim:
"We were part of the effort to more Iaccessible2 to the BSD license[...]"
I didn't see that kind of arrogance even from Microsoft. For those who don't know, Iaccessible2 is accessibility suite for blind people, and is released by Linux Foundation originally under LGPL. Adobe liked it, but they didn't like the license because they would need to admit to their users that it's open source, and provide code with distribution.
So Adobe decided to convince (bribe?) LF to give them that program with no-strings-attached, under BSD license, so they can take it, put it into their crap and claim they wrote it themselves. LGPL would be sufficient for normal company, or even company like Apple. They use LGPL'd KHTML in Safari (or they call it WebKit). But Adobe wants total ripoff, they want to claim they wrote it and they want users (small portion of them who read copyright notices) not to know about Linux Foundation. They want total propiratarization. So they had their way, LF gave them the thing under BSD.
But Adobe's McAllister now that paint that as open source contribution! Can you believe it????
What arogance, the frikin' Flash company talks about open source! What a spin!
Then it must be true: War is peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength...
