Re: Open source is a tough business

Yes!

I remember reading a rant from a GPL zealot who was complaining that some company was using some code he wrote without his permission, and without paying him.

Of course, he'd licensed all his code as GPL, but it seems he changed his philosophical tune when it affected his bottom line.
