Um, there's a pretty clear victim in attempted murder, surely--the person you were attempting to murder? Same with a failed DDOS--the target is quite clearly *the victim of* a failed attack. Some 'crimes' on the other hand are truly victimless; therefore arguably not crimes at all.
Again, I'm not voicing any opinion on whether there IS an infringement here--I'm not a lawyer (are you?)
Point is, once you've distributed code under a particular license, your intentions stop & the license takes over. If you don't like how it pans out, well, you should have chosen a different license. As I already stated, it still takes someone with an enforceable copyright to do anything about it. But this notion that the legal opinion of programmers is worth more than the legal opinion of lawyers is just wishful thinking.

OK, but with a lightweight window manager it's blazingly fast--on Windows you don't get a choice.

'takeout' implies that you, like, take the data out--you don't, you get to have a copy of it--whoo hoo, you get to have a copy of your own data

it took them years to actually stump up the £71.25mil to the govt after the tax creds disaster and even then only on condition of further govt contracts
the parliamentary committee investigating their effed up ministry of defence system described it as 'catastrophic' and their mistakes as 'truly reprehensible'
as for corruption, there's the crooked peer, and the string of their lawyers involved in assorted scandals
this of course is EDS, not HP--one would hope things will improve, especially now that they'll be running the new gchq 'big brother' system to monitor each and every online communication
not just bashing for the sake of it, in all honesty as a british citizen their relationship with the govt & manner of conducting business really worries me--you won't find many EDS fans in the UK
or parliamentary reports for that matter
also guessing their lawyers are a bit busy coping with the billions of pounds of compensation claims against them
though they did have a crooked labour peer in their pockets
