how can Debian do identity theft!?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on October 12, 2006 12:03 AM
if you take the FREE-Open-Source code of Mozilla Firefox and change it you create a new product. Mozilla refuses to let anyone falsely label any non-Mozilla product as a Mozilla product. Debian changed Mozilla Firefox and turned it into something else. now they are trying to label their own product ("Debian Firefox"?) as a Mozilla product. that is con & identity theft. I did not know that part of FOSS is the right to pretend you are something you aren't. if it is so, then I don't want to be part of it. I don't want to be part of a movement that says that using my social security number (/"trademark") and pulling money (/"users"/"reputation") out of the bank (/"market") in my name is basic freedom that everyone should have. such a claim in encitment for commiting serious fellony.
