Exactly. I don't agree with that; There is nothing keeping open 
sourced GPL software from being sold commercially without that as 
long as the GPL is followed and the source is included when you sell 
it. I don't like the idea of a company thinking they can sell the 
work of others and not follow the rules.

Also keep in mind that what digum is doing in that regard is 
technically _illegal_ since having people sign away there rights 
violates the GPL since it _explicitly_ states that all users of the 
software _must_ have the same rights as the user before and to follow 
it you _must_ give others the same rights you have.

I dont agree with violating the GPL or the law, so I will never sign 
the disclaimer/NDA.
