I was reading this on El Reg, and while it is pretty out there a few of the points made sense to me: Introduce liability into the software business: This sounds reasonable to me. If you give me the means to assess the risk of failure from your product you can pass the responsibility to me. If you deny me that right, then you are responsible if you product is faulty. This would be a massive change in the structure of the industry, and some big name may not survive it. Net neutrality: Again reasonable. Either you are a common carrier and just pass everything requested by your customer to that customer blindly, or you are making value judgements on it and can be held responsible for it. If you no longer support a product, then open source it: This I really like. People have bought your product. They use it. You cannot be bothered to continue supporting it, then give them the means to do it themselves. Either you are out of the business, or you have a much better product on sale. In either case, you should not mind the source being out there. There are other points there, that I either do not understand or do not have strong feelings about. Any comments?
