@Mike Linksvayer , I don't think there's anything we can do about this problem, other than create a record that there were people who opposed these things. I'm somewhat convinced that those who support software freedom, etc. are simply relegated now to recording their objections to how things went in hopes that future generations will solve these problems. The people who want to control and manipulate Open Source but will not give up their power is too great.
Free Software had a better chance when companies ignored it. Now, it's their plaything they will use against us.
