Companies have to make a living. They likewise have restrictions on liability. I am *not* going to give you loader access to my embedded flight management system
Last time I looked nobody is being held at gunpoint and forced to use open source software. You use the work of others? Then respect the rules set by the authors. If you don't want to do that write it yourself.
As I stated somewhere below, TIVO is circumventing the freedoms granted by the GPL. They are taking work from others and denying the freedoms granted by the license. If they can't live with people recompiling and running new versions of the software, why don't they write their own OS or pay up to another vendor?
