The mafia declares war on open source software
This sounds too ridiculous to be true, but nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to the "intellectual property" dinosaurs of the world:
According to the International Intellectual Property Mafia Alliance, an umbrella group for the infamous criminals over at MPAA and RIAA, the use of, hell even encouragement to start using, open source software is equal to software piracy, or even anti-capitalism or possibly terrorism.
A joke you say? Unfortunately not. It's the copyright mafia doing what they do best.
I can't stress this enough: Don't feed the monsters. Stop the cashflow.
