Instead I think we should make as much money as possible with free software,
by that way we can:
1. develop more free software and make even more money
2. there is too much money spend in proprietary software, spending this
money in free software could ensure even more free software
As long as this is GPL, this should not be problem. We can not probably say
the same using the LGPL that can pervert the process.
