  My comment was not intended to be about moral issues, but business
models.  The only link to "morality" is what around tangibles often gets
the word "theft".  I don't believe that word ever applies to intangibles
like software, so tried to make a comparison to other activities.

  Since this is a business model issue I invite anyone who wants to
discuss this to do so in the Free Software Business mailing list.  Thanks
to Bjorn Reese for pointing out that list.

  I also have to apologize for confusing two Alex's in this list in my 
last reply.
