Why must we adopt GPL license?-dupe

Author: JT Smith

From BULMA: "Could you imagine a world in which penicillin had died the same day as Fleming died ? Could
you imagine a world in which only British people could be saved from the death because
Fleming who was British, has discovered the penicillin in 1928 ? It seems ridiculous isn't it? How
could anybody want to hide a such discovery only for money? Could you even imagine if he
dies without sharing his discovery. Could we wait ten more years until somebody else
rediscovered it?

Well it seems all right when we are speaking about medecine but why dont't we think the same way
when we are speaking about programing?" This article is also available in Spanish and French.
