Help JMRI

I don't even use the software from the JMRI project, but I had to donate a little to help their potentially important case. The violators are claimer that by being free (as in beer), all copyright is waived and thus any GPL restrictions are not even the project's own to claim. Wow, that is an evil claim.

Do what you can, even ajust five or ten bucks.

The project in question doesn't appear to use the GPL. Nevertheless, the behaviour of the agressors concerned (filing patents, disregarding software licences, playing baroque legal games) is obviously highly unethical.

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
