... thoroughly disgusting, shouldn't FSF(E) comment on that?
As if all that wasn't enough, here's another brick to add to the
teetering tower of news, courtesy of Andres Guadamuz, a lecturer in law
at the University of Edinburgh.
Guadamuz has done some digging and discovered that an influential lobby

the equivalent of piracy - or even worse.
And we're still talking "just" open source, not even software libre here...
