New software license: Up Yours FSF

Author: JT Smith

"Early this morning, a number of not-quite-open source corporations, ranging from Microsoft to
IBM, annouced that they would begin to publish many part of their applications under the UYF
(Up Yours FSF) license. The upshot of the license is that you are allowed to do anything you want
with the code it is designed for, except compile it."
The story's from the humor site Segfault.
