I don't want to start a flame war, so if it's addressed elsewhere,
please direct me there.
I'm wondering how the GPL and LGPL can be reconciled with part 9 of the
open source definition. I don't see how they can.
Also, how does OSD part 3 protect the author of the code from what I
think (and this IS just MY _OPINION_) are malicious clauses in other
licenses, specifically the LGPL, clause 3. A case can also be made that
LGPL clause 3 is in conflict with OSD part 7, depending on which legal
dictionary you're reading.
