Newsflash: People prefer free to $$$

According to SCO's Darl MacBride, the GPL (Gnu Public License) threatens the $229 billion software market. The SCO Group CEO enlisted the help of the World Intellectual Property Organization to bolster his arguments against the open source GNU General Public License, or GPL, and Linux during a keynote address at the CD Expo conference in Las Vegas.

Here's another newsflash, Darl - there's no law which requires me to sell my intellectual property, I can choose to give it away (while still retaining copyright). I can even choose to release it into the Public Domain! Imagine that, freedom of choice - what an innovative concept!
