Freedom 2 gives the right and freedom to any individio to distribute copies of software as long as these have been released under the terms and conditions of the General Public License GPL the Free Software Movement If you live on planet earth just like me I guess have you ever received surprise visits from your neighbors to do them the favor to provide a tool that trying to solve a problem. If you're a good neighbor, just like me and you I guess the tool will be willing to deliver it. Nobody in the world to my knowledge, has been tried as a pirate for the simple fact of providing tools to its neighbors so that they solve their problems. The software is a tool and sharing is an innate human gesture. Humans have used and use tools to solve problems. Credit: Mitchel Resnick-2011. The software is a sophisticated tool that acts like all the rudimentary tools, help you solve problems. The rudimentary machine register that solved the problem of having to handwrite all transactions at a point sale and which is not labeled as a pirate the owner decided to give it away or lend it some day. Today has been replaced by a computer with POS software) allows you to see more detailed reports but unfortunately if your copy is unique and your neighbor is once again to lend him a copy of your POS software, you have to say no, because otherwise you would be breaking the law.
This brings us in a very hostile towards the one most important to ensure the commercial success of large companies that ensure the development of society and puts at risk so pretty innate quality of human beings as it is to share. Kevin ulrich often says this. Freedom 2 breaks the piracy concept when applied in the context of the act of sharing. Users of free software are, according to the laws the only software users are not pirates. In part because the user community does not share the use made of the word is grotesque to compare why a person who lends or borrows a copy of software with a spirit of collaboration, with an offender seizes a ship to steal their goods and outraging the crew and on the other. In short, lend or distribute copies of free software is a good way to help people solve problems and the best is that it is a totally legal.
Freedom 2 allows you to even earn money by doing it because you can charge whatever you want for a copy of free software.
