 But you get *FULL* credit for your innovation under GNU. As per GNU
you cant keep your innovation to yourself and you have to share it
with the community from which the work was derived. If *your*
innovation is based on hard work of several others then you are in
fact exploiting *others* innovation not yours.
 So, GNU doesnt let you exploit others innovation but how come this
locks down people ?
