Mozilla.org Spin-Off?

Wednesday December 16th, 1998

ZDNet posted an interesting article concerning Netscape's relation to Mozilla.org and the possibility of Netscape making Mozilla a non-profit organization.

The article states that it has been considered before, and could be a possibility in the future. The main reason behind spinning off Mozilla, would be legal protection if patented code was contributed, and Mozilla.org was then sued. Being non-profit, Mozilla.org would make no money, and be worth nothing, hence, nothing could be gained by suing them.

More ZD|FUD. What a load of baloney.

They take half a quote, use it entirely out of context... And generate more hits for their site, usually from easily-excited Slashdot readers who click before they think. And who thereby (perhaps unwittingly) help spread the FUD even furthur and help finance more of the same, to boot.
