Re:Mozilla violating the Four Freedoms

Your examples are cases of deliberate malfesance, while Mozilla is not allowing even good-faith improvements to their software to be made that resolve security issues without individual permissions to be created for each and every change.

The need to defend a brand against shoddy workmanship has a reasonable basis. The means chosen by the Mozilla Corporation are unfortunately unusually onerous.
