I see that the reasons you believe to be the biggest problems of the
current proprietary software model are technical problems; however,
Free Software is not about technical advantages.  It is about social
and moral advantages.

As your proprietary model only tries to gain the positive technical
aspects that Free Software has, it is rather pointless in my opinion.

And BTW, the license seems to contain various paragraphs taken from
the GNU GPL, which would be a copyright violation. ;-)
