I love "procedural-type communications", and the brown envelopes that come with them.
A con-man Arthur Brock said:
We are trying to say: the only valid way to use our code is if that developer’s end-users are the sole authors and controllers of their own private crypto keys
In other words, only organisations with lots of money for lawyers and developers and backhanders.

He personally won't make money out of allowing a million brilliant, individual (but not rich) devs to play with it, improve it, and branch it.

I.e. He doesn't want to open-source it at all; he wants a proprietary license -- so they should give him what he wants.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
