"As part of its spitting match with Microsoft over the use of instant messaging services, AOL has decided to withdraw TiK, the company's open source implementation of its messaging protocols..."
"When I went to the TiK home page, as listed by the entry in freshmeat, I received no response."
"No matter, there are other sources for TiK, such as at the Linuxberg section of any Tucows mirror..."
"The COPYING file that ships with the TiK package I downloaded from AOL clearly indicates that it's released under the GNU General Public License (GPL)."
"This is a textbook example of problems posed by the implementation of free software at the hands of those who may not appear to know what they're doing."
