There is unexplored potential to create guild software which would not be libre in a universalist sense, but would still be free enough not to prevent use/study/sharing/remixing by average users. You would be using the software under the terms of the guild, which might forbid certain sorts of activities and ban uses by megacorps.

@coopcloud @bob That looks ok. As I'm reading it, it looks like the usual copyleft convey/modify/sharealike applies but that commercial use is restricted to coops as defined by certain laws.

@bob yep, assuming your idea of guilds are publicly regulated, this seems like a good enough approximation. this license is vetted by coop-aware french lawyers and in use today
