This company is not Microsoft and it's not Sony so they'll need all the sales they can make.
We'll see whether they go on dreaming of getting some great DRM-B2B sales until they have to shut down or if they get a clue earlier and open up their device to all those who want to buy and use it.

And then there's still the GPL, this could hurt much. I talked to some people and am still considering to ask for the (complete) sources formally in January. If they make money on somebody elses work they have to obey certain rules.

Too bad that there are always some anal people who (tend to) ruin it for all.
