Comment Protection against this (Score 1) 222

Incidentally, I have a sort of instinctual protection against this kind of thing to make sure I get the downtime I need. After enough computer use my brain says ENOUGH! and I just stop for a few minutes. Maybe it's a sort of attention deficit disorder, but I say it's my brain knowing when enough input is enough input.

I find that the effectiveness of a software license is directly proportional to the amount of money the coder has to spend on legal fees. Maybe I don't have enough experience here, but free-software coders don't strike me as particularly wealthy.

(This statement is not an endorsement of software license violation, which is considered copyright infringement and not just contract violation.)
