I guess I'm just a person that's lost a lot of faith in institutions so maybe my thought patterns come off as weird

do you have faith in yourself to attempt to claw back what you've made from being used for evil, even if that attempt is ultimately unsuccessful?

i dont even know what npm is and i laugh every time somebody drags them

It's the nodejs package manager and it's even worse and stupider than you would imagine given that

Its basically impossible to prevent people from actively stealing your code and knowing they're stealing it. But making a lawyer say "we're not legally allowed to use this" is an 80% solution.

The problem is if the enforcement is "or we get sued" that does jack and/or poo poo for an individual

there’s ambulance chasers for everything - if it’s a slam dunk case and you have no resources it’s possible to get someone to do it on commission

imo there are no slam dunks in software law because there aren't enough judges or jurors who actually understand what the gently caress is going on

I mean it’s not like busybox had a lot of money to kick the poo poo out of dozens of garbage hardware manufacturers, for example

hippocratic license now has a v2.1 and has moved quite a bit from its “mit plus a clause or two” origins

it’s might actually be getting into the territory of not necessarily being a poison pill for commercial use, adding a bit about “Hague Rules on Business and Human Rights Arbitration” for arbitrating disagreements

one interesting thing, that doesn’t really relate to the ethics bits, is: “Licensee must cause any modified versions of the Software to carry prominent notices stating that Licensee changed the Software.”

You think anyone would commercially use that, when it reduces their right to force you into regular corporate arbitration?

if the government is already doing evil by dronestriking people, then we should at least make it slightly less evil by making sure the drones are controlled using free and open source software :spergin:
