Why is BitShares Public Domain?
« on: December 17, 2014, 12:02:55 AM »

As some of you have heard I have started my own blog.  I plan on using this blog to detail many questions that come up as I feel inspired.  Today I felt the need to clarify our decision to use Public Domain.  Eventually this blog will be hosted at bitshares.org, for now you can see what I have to say here:

I assume you have thought many times if it would be better you have introduced yourself as "shatoshi2" from the beginning ...  :)

Use spell check!
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Because BitShares was developed as part of a larger vision to make governments irrelevant, it would be a contradiction to depend upon governments to enforce any kind of software license. BitShares must succeed without any kind of license protection at all.

IMO this "public domain" stamp is questionable for the sources and a violation of third party licences included in the bitshares repository at least for binaries.

See https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=8571.0 and https://github.com/PTS-DPOS/PTS/blob/master/LICENSE.md and https://github.com/PTS-DPOS/PTS/blob/master/LICENSE_GUI.md .
Please vote for my BitShares witness "cyrano" and for my STEEM witness "cyrano.witness"!

Indeed ;) FYI there are four instances of "intelectual" that should read "intellectual".

Agreed, Highcharts in particular seems troublesome IMO. Once you use it in an application with user login, you need a paid license for it.
