CDDL is not a free software licence. It restricts the actions of support agents and other similar people. At least as far as the debian free software guidelines go, that seems like discrimination against a significant field of endeavour to me. I don't know how that sits with FSF or OSI, but who cares? I don't want copyright licences trying to tell me any agent contracts can't cover the software I supply. These days, copyright law is so strong that I fear it would override my commercial agreements. Anyone know whether that's unfounded?
There is no good reason for the support disclaimer clause to be drafted in the obnoxious absolute terms that it is. It looks like a drafting bug. Why won't Sun fix it?
