maybe we (you) have to find a better licensing as creative commons.
see, i was pushed out of pioneer once, an australian dev. had followed what the fuzz was about and contacted me.
his very first mail was "i don't like to publish it as open source, i worked in industry and i have good reasons not to do so"
his main reason wasn't that a nobody could steal our ideas, it was because industry will take profit of our ideas without having to ask for permission,
that's why they so generously handing to us devs the tools we need. so we started a closed group of three developers. nothing was ever made public of that, it's our work, or should have been, unfortunately due to shit which can happen in life i lost contact to him.
means yes we would have to pay for licenses, but it means also that we have full rights over our content.
his arguments really changed my thoughts about open source.
and dammit creative commons have grown to be as complicated as any licensing and also that is not to our benefit, it's to the benefit of lawyers.
natively and naively i would say: "what a bullshit", and certainly i don't understand why we can't be friends.
it seems it didn't works, i mean yes we could and some can, but what about those who won't?
since i can't extract the teeth of such a sly guy from "cookamongo" i have to find better ways.
means licensing of my creative work.
or i have to live with the fact that such will happen sooner or later.
however i hope none of you guys ordered the "gyruss" from him, ok whatever will happen it's for sure a valuable collectors item.
but it smells a bit fishy no?
