To people that in the middle of an argument raises the word "anti-IP"
and/or "fundamentalist". It's even worse if he put those word together in
the same sentence. And if he still adds "you the open source community"
to the sentence it deserves only an answer: moron^Wdeeply confused.
Of course, pretending that the politicians' opinion (or "political
majority") are more relevant and "definitory" of ethical _and_ legal
dilemmas does not help him neither.
Do you think also that he is clearly biased? (to say the least).
According to Florian: "Patent law must have strict limits indepently of
few software creators' desire, but copyright law can be extended and
interpreted according to the desire of few software creators". Oh wait!,
Blizzard is also against software patents (for good economical reasons,
by the way), nice contradictory coincidence. He's spent too much time
with pointy haired execs... in Brussels, too much.
First ESR whined against GPL, now FM against the "anti-IP-FLOSS
fundamentalists". We must improve the process to select our leaders, :-)
