    SubjectRe: New BK License Problem?

    The clause is specifically designed to target those companies which
    produce or sell commercial SCM systems. That's why we explicitly
    left out "distribute". The open source developers have nothing to
    worry about.

    I don't have any problems with what you're trying to achieve, but my
    fear is that it doesn't even do that.

    Nothing in your license changes stops someone from dark-room
    duplicating bitkeeper. Just as clone Intel processors are sold
    quite legally today. Intel lost their attempts to stop that and
    my current guess is that you have a smaller legal representation
    than Intel has :-)
