I don't dispute that the incentive to create is
more important than the freedom to copy, but
incentive to create is not the goal of the OSD.

Can someone from intradat explain why you want
OSI approval?  Why do you care?

  - You explained the rationale for your license.

  - You had a lawyer review it.

  - You cannot call it "OSI approved" until
    it is approved.  So why is that important to you?

Why not release your software without making
claims about being OSI approved?
