The more I think about stuff, the more I'm inclined to think fuck open source and attempt to optimize for ethically free software


this is becoming more important to me because I'm debating giving source code licenses to people who pay for koype instead of making it fully open

Look if your suggestion focuses on smacking wrists versus preventing it from jump, it's not a solution that works for people who are harmed by the status quo

As long as it's your work, it's your call. There's no ethical issue there until you accept contributions. At that point, there's a moral responsibility to the expectations you permitted over and above any legal agreements involved
