Thank you for giving me the opportunity to explain this to you, a story about someone republishing Mark Pilgrim’s book and selling it on Amazon. Not directly about the GPL, but the principles are the same.

  1. Indeed. Yet, I think Mark is kind of “exceptional” and most people wouldn’t react that way. The simple fact that he wrote about it proves that this raised interrogations from him.

    I guess too many people assume that contributing is a “kern” : when you contribute to something, you expect people who use your work would contribute back, while it’s not, some licenses allow people to take without giving.
