Well spoken Maarten! It's not that hard to write good software, it's very hard to get rich with good software.

That's the right approach if you are willing to publish your code. That's how I see it too. And I don't have a problem if I need to inform the author about the usage if I use it for commercial stuff. To me this is not a constraint but the request to motivate the people that have done the code to show them that it's of value in a particular business setup. I don't want to start endless discusssions about open-source models: I never understood why people put a copyright on public released source-code. Either I release my code or I don't. And if, BSD is the right way to go. Robert
