That's not possible and of course not the intention either.

But speaking about the Association selling licenses: I as a developer  
have any problem if the T3A sold licenses and therefore has more means  
to support
the TYPO3 community as long as TYPO3 is still available under a GPL  
(or the like)
license. For me it's the same as if I donated money to the FSF or a  
organisation: Both, FSF and T3A, are non-profit and aim to foster the  
of Open Source Software. If I can support that spirit by providing  
code, I gladly
do that.

What's your feeling about that?
