Not saying it was a matter of opinion, I was stating my opinion on the 
matter.  Honestly I don't know the GPL good enough to argue it with ya 
anyways I don't think, thus I was taking your word on it and stating my 
opinion in as far as the current situation and what it does to business.

Don't get me wrong though, I am not against open source, I believe in it 
fully, but I don't necessarily blame others for trying to keep things 
closed to make a bit of money, to a certain extent, though eventually I 
reach a point where it goes to far.

In as far as hardware patents...  You are familiar with Behringer I 
believe, how many times have they blatantly taken someone else's idea, 
and re manufactured it with no R+D and cheaper components?  I can 
definitely see why some people might be a bit edgy over things like that.
