"yes, we love open source, but we don't know how to make money out of Amazon so we want it not to be open source but pretend it is"

@espectalll It was one of the big stories of last year, but Commons Clause is not really an open source license. I think they submitted it to OSI and it was rejected.

Also I'm not a copyright lawyer but my interpretation is that with copyleft licenses you can grant extra permissions as an addition to the license but I don't think you can add restrictions which conflict with the four freedoms. Commons clause tries to do that.

@bob I know perfectly well about Commons, it's SSPL the one I didn't know anything about
