Stop trying to solve business problems with software licenses.

@maxamillion Switching to an appropriate license does solve business problems. Going proprietary would solve their business problems. For instance, MongoDB idiotically decided to sell a complete FOSS database rather then a database built on a FOSS engine. Same thing with ES although Elastic is doing really well despite playing the victim.

@jollyrogue maybe ... it's also possible that as those platforms go closed source, their customers move to the inevitable fork of each of their final open source releases because the fork will eventually surpass the capability and popularity of the original. Alternatively, they'll just go use something else in due time.
