Yep, this was the problem and you interpret it as many others do. The
Debian folks didn't like this so much that they dropped LS from their
releases. I think that the LS developers weren't taking the commercail
thing quite as far as you are. They seemed more interested in keeping
Synth manufacturers from using the code, which is disappointing sime a
good software company could pick this up and run with it quite
quickly. This would be great for us users, should they every do it.
Note that this license modification was not in the latest official
release the last time I looked. It was only in the CVS version so
there is an opportunity to fork the database and put a development
team together to keep it truly Open Source, should someone care enough
to do so.
