How do you deal with people who take snippets of your code, or even huge
hunks of code and put it in their software and sell it?
In the linux community there is a code of ethics in addition to a legal
code which prevents programmers from doing this. What is offered free
remains free.

Are we suggesting that, since we can't expect IBM to offer RPG as open
source , that we all follow Brads lead and develop or offer what we have
developed to the community as either freeware, low cost shareware, or
open source?
I think it is a great idea! I have lots of API wrappers I would be
willing to share and I also have some shareware and freeware. Not as
much or as useful as Brads but still, its out there.
