I love your "NOT" term.
And ... it is also a gift to opensource hardware integrators entities,
which only wait for a thing to be developed, designed, performed, by FLOSC
(Free Libre OpenSource Culture) people, and then when it's done, those
entities take the specifications, manufacture it, distribute it and sell
it, without giving to developers any feedbacks (money, resources,
encouragements, good-will, love, happiness, or commercial profit
Let say it like that: "leech non-redistributive economy" on the back of
FLOSC multi parties groups of people and organizations.
And this might NOT fit with the Commons and the General Public Interest too.
That may why the P2P license has found an audience. There might be
something to improve there.
