--- Comment #3 from luke-jr+redhatbugs at utopios.org ---
I have no particular reason to sell Liberation by itself, nor to sell the
majority of software I use period. I do, however, have interest in only running
(truly) free software so I don't have to worry about these things.

The GNU project considers OFL to be "free" because they consider it acceptable
to use a loophole and bundle it with a dummy program. I consider loopholes to
be bad faith, and I have doubts that it would fly in court if it ever came down
to that.

I do still have the older Liberation version installed, but truly free fonts
seem rare and I thought the freedom was the primary motivation behind the
Liberation font family. It seems a shame to lose that.
