McBride's New Open Letter on Copyrights
Caldera
The Courts
Posted by CowboyNeal on Fri Dec 05, '03 12:22 AM
from the can't-go-a-day-without-some-sco dept.
dtfinch writes "An open letter was posted today by Darl McBride, where he restates his claim that the GPL violates the U.S. Constitution, patent laws, copyright laws, and the DMCA. Mostly he just builds up a false image of the Free Software Foundation and open source supporters claiming that they have no respect for intellectual property and believe copyrights should be eliminated, then attacks that image, AKA the straw man attack. Nothing we haven't seen before."
