Then I must be expressing my intention wrong. The freedom to use
everything everywhere everytime for free is a nice goal - but for me
pretty irrelevant. There is enough stuff out there, I can exactly use
this way without breaking any law. Free downloads are definitivly not,
why I joined the pirate party. I am here to oppose against the
continuing decrease of civil rights.
I also like to use stuff for free, that's why I put much time in
promoting free content. I think it's the better way to convince artists
to release their work free instead of forcing them via law to do so.
I mean, why have you postulated the four freedoms of the gpl instead of
just breaking the law and copying everything you want to have for free?
Or lobbying to get the laws changed? You could also work for microsoft
and copy all sourcecode you can get an release it for free - but you
don't did that. :)
