If you get upset that someone is exercising their freedoms by using your open source code in a manner you don't like, you've missed the point of said freedoms.

@maxamillion There are problems with copyleft licenses, like the infamous internal distribution loophole of the GPL, and FOSS licenses are very pro-capitalist.

FOSS has gotten to a point where we need to address some of the shortcomings of the copyleft licenses as they are rather weak and pro-business. The GPL is still a very pro-business license. For instance, companies only have to provide the source code if asked. Code doesn’t have to ship with the product.
