Subject: OT:Re: blastman007 Entschuldigung
From: Minuk Choi (Choi.Minuk_at_verizon.net)

Going off topic for a second...

reading this e-mail made me realize something... you all can write in english? For some reason I didn't think much about how everyone was writing in English until this fellow's e-mail.

Regarding the ebay thing... do 'ya suppose it's time to change to license? I mean, MySQL has a GPL license for private use and a commercial license, if you plan to sell it.

But the thing is... I know of technophobes who're afraid of doing anything to their devices... and would rather pay the money to have someone else "install" it. Even though installing Rockbox takes very little effort, some people might prefer to pay to have it installed, because they know they might screw it up or something.... kinda like how if you buy furniture from a store and pay to have it assembled by the distributor; you're not really stealing anything from the creator(s) of the furniture, are 'ya?

I know it's kinda late to be commenting about this... but well... I couldn't read the auction so I don't know what the seller wrote, but it sounds like to me people here got offended that someone was selling an Archos unit with Rockbox pre-loaded. As long as the copyrights are all in there, it shouldn't matter, shouldn't it?

  Hier mit will ich mich für meine dumme und unüberlegte Tat, eine Software mit Copyright zu meinen Gunsten zum Verkauf zu stellen, entschuldigen!

  Es tut mir leid das ich unüberlegt gehandelt habe und dafür stehe ich mit meinem Namen gerade.

  Aber dafür werden nur einige Leute Rockbox näher kommen und diese auch benutzen, natürlich sehe ich ein das es falsch von mir war und ich habe nach der email den Artikel sofort zurückgezogen.

  Wie ich euch "entschädigen" soll weis ich nicht wirklich jedenfalls geht es wohl nicht mit finanziellen Mitteln da ich zur Zeit auch knapp bei Kasse bin.

   

  Entschuldigung

   

  Andreas K.
