Default Comments from Livejournal

I saw this mentioned in a Livejournal community I visit. The owner of the site went to advertise it, and well, I complained.

Me:
I'm pretty sure the authors of the open source emulators you use do not approve the usage of their programs in commercial endeavours.

soundedmind:
We obey the rules of the new open source license. We haven't recieved any complaints from anyone. And they make their stuff open source, unfortunately, they don't have to approve.
*shrugs*

ZSNES even modified their emulator to work with our system


Me:
"We haven't recieved any complaints from anyone."

That's because THREE OF THE EMULATORS ARE NO LONGER BEING DEVELOPED BY THE ORIGINAL AUTHORS.

"And they make their stuff open source, unfortunately, they don't have to approve."

It doesn't matter, they didn't make these programs to make money, or for someone else to take advantage of them to make money.

I can't believe people would stoop so low as to do something like this.


soundedmind:
Ok. I'm sorry but I'm not going to argue with you on this.
I'm sorry that you don't approve.
But it is open source annd 1005 legal.
Thank you.


I still don't buy it. The service seems good, it's the usage of these programs that bugs the hell outta me.
