Thanks to piluso, Traktion and happybeing for your replies!
piluso I am not a very technical guy and from the update it seemed to me that Identillect or other enterprises would be able to run their own separate instance of the network or build their own proprietary technology on it. These updates are understandably aimed at a more techical audience - I am just an interested netizen so perhaps a bit too deep for my needs!
Traktion, I like your example of Redhat and Fedora. A good point as well about GPL, I understand that should protect from companies building their own proprietary products which might outcompete SAFE as any modifications would also have to be made open.
happybeing, agreed SAFEnet does need to be sustainable, and there is nothing wrong with collaborating sensibly with companies which work for profit. I doubt a dogmatic communist approach will be very likely to succeed.
