If the source is available for everyone to read, then it is open
according to the normal meaning of those words in English. What is
misleading is to attach any other meaning to them. It's a typical
marketeer's trick to redefine words or concepts that have a clear
an established meaning, and IMHO that's a disgusting practice.

Besides that, DR is broadcasting plain lies. There is nothing in
the Linuxsampler licence nor in that infamouse README that should
impede you using it for an album or concert you sell commercially.


Follie! Follie! Delirio vano e' questo!
