"Choice" is the key word here.

Reading the article I felt like if OSI was pointing a gun at OSS contributors' heads.

NO! People contribute openly because THEY choose so. And they choose so because they WANT SO.

Open source is among the top reasons why IT is eating the world and advancing so fast, creating solutions to humanity's problems, opportunity for people to earn a living for themselves, their family, to contribute to society.

It's sad that the author got the idea so wrong...
