Subject RE: [Firebird-general] Firebird is described to have a "Demo" license in TuCows

That's outragous!

Suppose I posted a link to MySQL, and had a note that says "not a demo- the
limited functionality of this version is all there is". Would this be the
link to MySQL FOREVER? How would they NOT allow the MySQL people to change

I already tried but they won't do anything about it unless they get a
request from the person who gave them the original entry. We don't know
who that was - it wasn't authorised by Firebird Admin.
