But how can you help it? If the next time they choose to offer a free copy
of LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice, is there anything TDF can do about it?


Perhaps this should be considered an unfortunate cost of allowing
freedom. Assuming this organisation does not alter the source code,
the (L)GPL allows for sale of software. TDF should not be considered
liable for the naivity/simplicity of some people buying software that
is available freely elsewhere.
