Tragedy of the Commons Clause – tecosystems
Unsurprisingly, the record companies and their trade organization, the RIAA, were appalled at their products being shared user-to-user for free rather than purchased directly. In their eyes, their formerly paying customers were all thieves, not would be buyers who merely wanted a simpler, more convenient way to purchase music digitally. As a result, their response to this disruptive threat was not to offer users what they wanted: an online purchasing offering. Instead, they attempted to further restrict the digitization of physical media such as CDs, they employed advertising scare tactics and eventually litigation of their would be customers. They saw licensing and enforcement as the solution to a business model problem, in other words.

Commercial open source organizations who are considering licensing as a solution to their business problem, then, might want to focus not on whether Amazon is taking advantage of open source software, but why customers are flocking to Amazon and other cloud providers. Whether or not one believes that cloud providers can and should do more to support the open source projects – and the view here is that it is inarguably the case – is immaterial. Ultimately the problem faced by commercial open source organization is less the fact that the open source licenses they rely on are too liberal than the fact that customers want what many commercial open source organizations are unable or unwilling to provide: a managed service. Licensing cannot address that problem.

As has been said here before, licenses are always a tactic, but they’re rarely a strategy. If the Commons Clause is intended to “protect” open source but is both not open source itself and widely viewed as actively harmful to it, it’s not clear how much protection the industry needs.

The Commons Clause will destroy open source | Drew DeVault’s Blog
An alarmist title, I know, but it’s true. If the Commons clause were to be adopted by all open source projects, they would cease to be open source1, and therefore the Commons clause is trying to destroy open source. When this first appeared I spoke out about it in discussion threads around the net, but didn’t think anyone would take it seriously. Well, yesterday, some parts of Redis became proprietary software.

Commons Clause License
the clause that fucks OSS projects.

Without limiting other conditions in the License, the grant of rights under the License will not include, and the License does not grant to you, the right to Sell the Software.
