I think most of us agree that losing tilly to corporate games is a great loss indeed. Just the fact that his CPAN and core perl code may be "taken" away from us just reiterates that fact. This sort of crap could happen to any of us at any moment, so, while we're still heated about this subject, take time to review your situation with your employers.

Other than being totally peeved, there is not much we can do, except try to negotiate better contracts with our employers, as well as possibly petition (or lobby... but I really don't like the word) for better clarification of copyright laws. This particular incident, along with things like the DMCA, makes thing look very grim for consumers, as well as people that help to CREATE the content that companies like Vivendi sell.

All in all, this is a very scary event. One that should make us realize that we are losing a lot of rights every second. I think it's pretty obvious that tilly has the support of Perlmonks. So, for what it's worth, I openly support tilly in whatever course of action he takes.

Since I've learned so much from tilly's insight, I owe more than just my support. But, unfortunately, that is all I have to give...
