Digg Story: Another Loss For GPLv 3? Is the Free Software Concept being murdered?

Let's try it this way: I've been tearing my hair out trying to figure out what interface is going to work to post from digg.com to the new Google Blogger Blog. I hope more Internet companies achieve viability soon. I may have trouble pronouncing the problems I'm having, let alone solving them. Now I'll have to go back to my email to see whether I can find the message I got when I asked whether anyone had a new status on the changes necessary to make a post from digg.com to the Google Blogger Blog. That's enough for today.

digg user ecordell would like to share this story with you:

MySQL adjusts its license to prevent automatic failover to GPL v3. Call it the 'uncertainty' clause. This doesn't even look legal to me: How is it possible to take a product that has enjoyed the contribution of innumerable collaborators and then sell their work as though it were your exclusive property? MySQL was originally a teaching exercise.
