Let’s take a look

Let’s take a look at the highlights:

  1. They use the Internet, by virtue of TCP/IP, as “proof” of their thesis.

  2. They state that you cannot improve OR adopt OR commercialize GPL software.

  3. They state that you cannot integrate GPL’d software with proprietery software.

  4. They say you should keep publicly funded code away from the public sector, so that proprietary interests can make money from the work.

  5. They equate a lack of understanding of the GPL with valid reasoning against it.

In essence, that non-proprietary interests should not be allowed to use, adopt, improve, or make money from the work. That taxpayers should pay for it twice. And that nobody should be able to stop commercial entities from taking publicly funded code, they will then close off.
