Licensing free software for sale threatens anti-piracy efforts, alleges local UK official

The London Times Online this morning is carrying an op-ed piece written by Gervase Markham, a member of the Mozilla Foundation, who writes about a complaint received from a local member of the Trading Standards office in the UK. The complaint alleges that Mozilla’s efforts to enable others to sell copies of Firefox and keep the profits, hampers the interests of anti-piracy.

“I can’t believe that your company would allow people to make money from something that you allow people to have free access to. Is this really the case?” she asked.
