Thanks, Alex!

Yeah, the Software Freedom Law Center does very important work taking on GPL infringement cases.

I'm afraid software-as-service is inevitable. Moneyed interests regard it as an end game much the same way as they regard consumerist society a kind of asymmetric utopia. It will stratify computer users between those who use computing as a tool, and those to whom a computer is an appliance. For many users this dis-empowered state is desirable. ("Don't make me think!") But the extremely locked-down nature of it will drive people who want to build things to free platforms. Which is good.
