Due to our tight deadlines the latest date we need a decision by is 21/JUN/05 (today unfortunately). If you do not reply by this date we cannot guarantee that your product will feature on the disc.
I apologise, but I am losing patience with <magazine company>. You appear to have a large number of magazines, all of which wish to feature Firefox on their cover CDs, and so I get bombarded with vaguely threatening short-deadline emails because you don’t appear to be able to communicate with one another and/or understand what Free software is.
I’ve requested “repeat permission information” a couple of times and heard nothing back. So here it is: Firefox is free software. As the FAQ on our site clearly states, you don’t need our explicit permission to redistribute our binaries. Ever. Period. I won’t say it again; I’ll just point all future enquirers to you and you can explain it to them.
So why not go away and revel in your new-found freedom, rather than assuming we operate like some petty, intellectual-property-hoarding software house who requires signatures in triplicate on a lawyer’s used toilet roll before you can hand a CD of the software to the guy sitting next to you? It’s free, darn it! Everything we ship is free! Freeeee! Take it and be happy!
If you have new or updated version of the product requested and would like it included instead please let us know.
Please read the website to find out about new versions of the software. That’s what it’s for. :-)
