[tdf-discuss] Re: A marketing lesson!

e-letter wrote

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.

Actually they don't seem to be selling it. I have no idea what they mean by
"receive a Free copy"... Do they send a link? :) 

Do you mean the (L)GPL license allows people to sell copies of LibreOffice?
I thought it only allowed to charge for production/distribution costs...

This is not even the Tragedy of the Commons, it's the Tragedy of the Free
