BM-NC5BsmDBGAP2BCG218qG4uX25z51xoaE FREE SOFTWARE FOUNDATION HIJACK HACK LICENSE Jun 1 10:40 FREE SOFTWARE FOUNDATION HIJACK HACK LICENSE ( or how the GNU Affero GPL can be used to hijack your copyright. ) The GNU Affero General Public License reads in part: "This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version." ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The Trojan horse in the Affero GPL is the phrase, "(at your option) any later version." When you release your software under this license the FSF can download the software, with the license they provided to you; then re-write the license to declare their own copyright on modified versions of it, or even to declare it "proprietary." This particular GPL license does *not* make your software free. It makes it the property of the Free Software Foundation. By using this license you are the unpaid volunteer of the FSF. The clause, "(at your option) any later version" permits the end user, and/or Free Software Foundation to alter the licensing and control of your program, including, but not limited to, expressly stipulating that all rights are removed from the original author. If any later (and yet unwritten) version can be applied, then the FSF could arbitrarily publish this future license to its website, and declare "at our option" a re-write of the Affero GPL: "GNU Affero General Public License, version 33: This version of this license supersedes and replaces all previous versions of the license and is applicable to all software previously distributed thereunder which has been licensed to the Free Software Foundation. All software and incidents covered by this license are the sole corporate and individual property of the Free Software Foundation and Richard Stallman. All Rights are Reserved. Unless provided in writing, all use, reproduction, modification, and transmittal of this software is prohibited." In this hypothetical case thee Affero license and "at your option" clause has made your software Richard Stallman's personal property and locked you out of it. Now the FSF can sue you for distributing modified versions of your own software. If disputed most of the judges in the country would likely pronounce it legal under "contract law." Read the fine print! FREE SOFTWARE FOUNDATION HIJACK HACK LICENSE Jun 1 10:39 __________________________________________________________________________ Penny Rant!
