    1. Companies that fail to acknowledge or follow the licenses of open source designs have a chilling effect. People are less likely to release their clever designs as open source if they think they’ll end up being used to make money for large corporations.

      1. What license violation? There is no violation here. It’s lame and uncreative and lazy but if you think a license is violated here I would like to hear why.

      2. Mutable Instruments’ code is generally released under an MIT license. Modifying that code and making the modified code proprietary sucks, but it’s not violating the license.
        The MIT License permits reuse within proprietary software, provided that all copies of the software or its substantial portions include a copy of the terms of the MIT License and also a copyright notice.
        I’m not holding my breath on that copy of the terms of the license.
