As others have said, that simply is not open source, nor is it free
software, as the terms are generally understood in English.  If you
want to argue in support of your licensing model, that is fine.  Just
please don't call it open source or free software.  Using those terms
will increase confusion for no useful purpose.

And this is not the right mailing list for that discussion, either.
