Golf enthusiast given 30 days to cough up code

A Florida man has been accused of breaking the copyleft license of Mastodon by running an online instance of the software without providing its source code as required.

And not only that, the real-estate baron and wannabe tech tycoon has been told he has a month to fall in line with the fine print or put himself potentially at risk further action.

Mastodon is a Twitter-like microblogging service that you host yourself. Servers running this software can form a larger, decentralized social network.

I always wondered when the right wing Florida men of the country would discover open source social media platforms and attempt to ruin them.


He’d probably end up funding it by losing a lawsuit or two.
