They make a living and fund the development from selling licenses and support! > I have found postgresql to be an excellent replacement with no questions > about licensing issues. And best of all, any $$$ company can take all or part of the postgresql source code and sell it as or with their products. In the long run they will add their own patented extensions and leave open source one step behind. I do not want this and I doubt you do. Therefore I refuse to contribute, endorse or even use software projects allowing this type of intellectual property theft.
