@IceWolf but i can view all of facebook's code, i can open the source

@simula ...but that's not /open source./ That's /source available/.

You can't legally /do/ anything with it, and the being able to /do/ stuff with it is what open-source is about.

@simula That's like, the entire point of copyright, that if you take [large amounts of] the code and use it like that you're breaking the law.
