På sigt kan det betyde at alle de små software firmaer
der alligevel tjener deres penge, på servicering og 
kundetilpasning, begynder at udsende deres software som
source, dog ikke nødvendigvis copyleftet. Så kan de ungå 
bigfooting fra de store firmaer. Og når alt kommer til
alt er det vigtigere at et stykke software har tilgængelig
source end at det er copyleftet.
