[TYPO3-english] Extensions potentially violating the GPL

Hi, a small contribution...
1) It shouldn't go the way it goes with Joomla. There you have to buy
(the best) extensions. Am I right?
2) There are people making not that much money with TYPO3, and who are
poor programmers. They contribute to making TYPO3 a popular system by
simply using it for their (small) customers. Good quality should not
only be available to those who pay much money. So, TYPO3 must be there
for the little customers too.
3) It is understandable that different programmers want to protect
their software differently, for several reasons.
Do we agree on that? If so, perhaps there should be a way for
contributors to the TER to choose another license. Perhaps from some
of the Creative Commons licenses?
For the already build extensions that are not maintained, the author
can be asked what he/she wants? And if he/she doesn't respond, the
TYPO3 organisation can take the appropriate action. Changing the
license or keeping it to GPL... whatever.
Hope it adds to the discussion.
