@igeljaeger It has nothing to do with authoritanianism. It's just old copyright cartels lobbying to potect their old-school business models instead of innovating. It's an entirely pro powerful business decision. No, it's not pro small businesses, but the people claiming to be for free markets never really are, just for powerful players.
This is not a decision driven by some principles, rather by lack of thereof.
Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
