Standard Stallman och mjukvara - 2006-09-21, 15:22

Jag skickade ett mail till stallman där jag undrade vad han tycker om 5 års gräns på copyright, även för GPL-mjukvara.

Citat:

I could support a proposal which would make GPL-covered software's

source code available in the public domain after 5 years, if it had

the same effect on proprietary software's source code. I think this

would result in a net increase in what free software can do, so it

would advance our goal: liberating software users. (That's the GPL's

purpose, too: to advance this goal.)



The problem with the Pirate Party's program is that it would only do

half of that. It would give proprietary software developers the use

of GPL-covered source code, but it would not give us the use of

proprietary source code. The Free World would get the bad, but not

the good.



Proprietary software is restricted by EULAs, not just by copyright,

and the users don't have the source code. So what would be the effect

of terminating its copyright after 5 years? The effect would be that

users redistribiting unauthorized copies could only be sued for

violating the contract, not for copyright infringement. And they

still would not have the source code. In other words, no real change.

The program could even have a time bomb in it to stop working after 5

years.



To solve this problem, I've proposed to the Pirate Party that it adopt

additional provisions to require proprietary software source code to

be put in escrow, to ensure it is released in the public domain after

5 years.

Could you please post this message on that forum?
