[News] Why Business Model That Harm Freedom Are Bound to Die

Hash: SHA1

If Your Business Model Revolves Around Taking Some Feature Away From People,
You're Doing It Wrong

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm always amazed when companies think that they can take features away from

| figured out how to make money share with those who haven't isn't the answer 
| either. There are business models that work just fine for those creating the

| downloaded for free, thanks to BitTorrent.
