WP & the nature of ‘free’ GPL work

Ran across this post by one of the big names I remember from the very early days of WordPress Alex King.

It’s interesting as it covers what appears a very real and worrying issue of the implication that GPL plugin or theme work is free and how this ‘belief’ is causing quite a few developers to consider whether it’s worth the considerable time they spend in developing these ‘free’ plugins for what is often no recompense but a lot of rude an even mildly abusive requests / demands for support – also for ‘free’!
