    Note:I posted an opinion of this same piece on the article page, but thought this might be a good topic of discussion.

    This is kinda funny in a way.

    Well, I guess that is what others have to do, is make it open source.

    But one has to think, that if money is involved in this, how are they making it?

    Would it be safe to say that developers could create open source p2p programs but sell the code for say.....$5 or so, without the need to say donate money.

    I haven't heard of anyone doing this, so I would like to here what others think of this idea.

    At least if you think about it, the MPAA or RIAA won't be able to come after you because you are just selling YOUR code that you created. Who cares what others use it for?

    Definately want to hear want others think about this.
