if you are working on an open source software project i recommend looking into a copyfarleft license like CSL which forbids giant corporations from profiting for free from your hard work

coinsh.red/c/csl.txt

the CSL makes it so that only individuals or organizations explicitly organized as worker-owned cooperatives can use your work without asking you for permission

copyleft is a beautiful dream but it is being exploited by late stage capitalism as a source of free labor

@dankwraith I took a class on how to create a startup, and they explicitly said we should use open source to save money, and to run it on a server so we didn't have to share the source code (not sure if the AGPL existed back then though)

@dankwraith Oof. Can't wait for the inevitable whirlwind of drama if this becomes a bigger thing + all the people missing the point of why there is a problem
