Parent article: On the dual-license model
As I commented over on Josh Berkus's blog when he took the same position:
The problems you point out are really problems of corporate-owned source, not a dual-license model. Even if the InnoDB product had been pure BSD-licensed like PostgreSQL, they or the new owners, as the copyright holders, would still be free to take the next version to a different, proprietary model.
