Well, ethics and big companies are maybe not the best friends. But Google
sometimes gets above the crowd, as recently in the suit against Oracle:
"Each of the Patents-in-Suit is invalid under 35 U.S.C. § 101 because one or
more claims are directed to abstract ideas or other non-statutory subject matter."
About myself, I have been self-employed for about 10 years, at my own little
company, which is mainly comprised of myself, a few interns from time to time,
and working with other small companies or freelances here in Paris.
I only do software development, and for a few years now I have mostly done audio
related development. And yes, it pays the bill.
I also do music and have quite a lot of artistic and not-so-artistic projects
maturating in the lab, which usually involve both music and software
development. Free software is everywhere here, it's my culture, but I'm no
fanatic. I think there's enough room in the world for other approaches, and that
it can all be complementary.
