Mike took us off on a tangent when he insisted
that the concept of "moral
rights" was a purely legal construction, but up until then I thought
were going well.
Or you went off on a tangent when you started talking about moral
rights in a more general sense that was strictly relevant to the
discussion. Either way, a tangent was certainly gone off on.
My point of view is that the proposed license update is a violation of the
moral rights of the contributors. If Mike is going to deny that moral
rights exist in the first place, then I feel the need to explain that they
I guess I could just ignore this point, as rather self-evidently false, but
I was also interested in why he felt that way.
Anyway, I don't know where this leaves us. At least one moderator has
suggested that this needs to stop, so it's unclear whether it's possible to
discuss this issue at all.
