[ba-unrev-talk] Augmenting Open Source Licenses

An idea I had last night...
What is missing from GPL to my mind, is a clause that allows the writer of the
software to force commercial users to be more socially responsible. Something to
the effect that commercial users must pay a designated sum to the registered
charity (or charities) of the author's choosing.
Each author could insert the name (or a link) to the charity of their choice.
Bundled code (e.g. a particular rollout) would extract these and insert them as
a group in the main license text.

Comments (minus perjorative adjectives) appreciated.    (02)
