Technocrat.net: Corel Beta-Test Agreement – Officials Urge Calm!

“Corel has put out a beta-test agreement that infringes on the
copyright of various pieces of free software by overlaying
different license terms on that software. It’s an honest mistake,
some of them don’t know a thing about free software, but they’re
going to have to learn now or they will really annoy a lot of the
people who wrote the software in their system.”

“I am talking with them about it and will help them fix the
problem. Don’t panic – just write [email protected] to “vent” if you
can’t stand the pressure :-)”

“Again, this will be fixed. Don’t panic.”
