 Re: Fraud - donated lately? ask for refunds

It was obviously fraud and obviously copyright infringement. This person intended to make money by using someone elses trademark (registered or not) and then used copyrighted material against the copyright owners best interest. Theft involves the intent to deprive the rightful owner of the use of their property. Freshports asks for donations, he tried to intercept some of those donations. He is a thief. You don't need to think hard to figure that out -- and The Only Grey is a Cloudy Mind(tm).

The BSD world I've been in for 12+ years holds no grudge against anyone for using the OS for any purpose. It does however expect people to obey copyright law. Just because I use BSD or advocate it does not mean that I somehow give up my rights to work that I create myself. I could even use the GPL or some other license, or even charge for binaries and not release the source (not that that would be very useful).

MS for all of it's evils obeys the BSD license last time I checked. I don't think I or any other person with a real BSD background resents that. I think it is marvelous. Basically the entire planet uses the BSD TCP/IP stack.
