Follow @aral @tagomago haha!

I always loved the JSON PL. JSON PL is/was very similar to the whole "anti-capitalist license" scene in that:
1. it wanted to do some good
2. it did it in a way that made it a non-free license

But it did say "The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil." and that made IBM's lawyers queasy.

So they asked for an exception, and the author of JSON gave it to them: "IBM and it's customers are also allowed to do evil with the Software".

That's some awesome legal trolling!
