4. miserlou: I’m a person who makes my living by porting and writing free softwareand then selling it for a profit. Unfortunately, I have to useproprietary, corporate controlled markets (Android Market, iPhone AppStore, etc) to do this. How do you feel about digital software marketsas a financial support structure for Free software?RMS: I don’t think of them under the rubric of finance, because whatpreoccupies me is the restrictions they impose. For instance, Apple’sterms for the iGroan/iBad app store have the effect that anyexecutable received through the app store cannot be free software.There are free software source licenses that permit you to distributean executable through Apple’s app store, but that executable won’titself be free.As far as I know, there is no such problem with Android Market.If you want to release a version for the iGroan and iBad, I suggestthat you stop dealing with iTunes. Instead, distribute it youself andinvite people to jailbreak in order to install it.
