To followup on my Wolfram ToS post yesterday, I got a really nice email from business development at Wolfram today, quote:
I think that’s great.
A lot of the discussion regarding the post on Hacker News centered on the viability of Wolfram’s Terms. Frankly, I have no interest in infringing on their terms and I feel rather dim that I didn’t better research the ToS out of the gate. That’s more of an ethical than a legal issue for me, regardless of whether they are enforceable.
I’m sure they’ll run into cases where they still have to file a complaint to get a resolution, sadly. I would not have been one of those cases, however, and it’s nice to see they are listening.
