4.) What’€™s to stop some big company from taking WordPress dumping a bunch of money into creating some Knock-OffPress and mass marketing it as a way to gain attention for other services or products they have? After everyone moved to WordPress when Movable Type’€™s pricing structure changed, how confident are you that WordPress users would remain loyal or what could Automattic do to compete?
I have no problem with someone creating Knock-OffPress ‘€” that’€™s one of the freedoms of the GPL and those who would trade freedom for security of their business deserve neither.
