"I come at this whole license discussion from three
angles, which I will attempt to correlate with three of the seven
deadly sins before I'm done. As an avid fan of Charles Dickens,
himself a staunch supporter of Copyright Law (of which there was
none by his death in 1870), I will talk about GREED, aka
COVETOUSNESS. As an author myself, I will talk about HUBRIS, aka
PRIDE. And as an author of a derivative work, I will talk about
either ENVY or SLOTH.
Now, although this is shaping up as a sermon, take heart, I
think I'm going to end up saying that these things are all really
good things, and should be protected by our licenses. And I'll try
to squeeze ANGER and LUST in there somehow if I can.
Please stick with me. I will be making some points."
