Comment Open source License model. (Score 1) 700

Wouldn't it be great if Sun says OK lets open source under an almost exact copy of the GPL but list three companies that will not be able to redistribute the code without expressed written permission of Sun. I don't really even think it would violate the spirit of the GPL, and the community low-to-no-profit organizations would be able to dig their fingers into the technology, many of whom are the type to contribute code for that reason.

I know its not going to happen, but wouldn't it be nice?
