But there is no absolute natural right to access other people's information.
I agree that privacy is an important right, and I would object to any
law requiring people to release all software that they write.
But when someone chooses to make a program available in some way, it
is no longer a matter of privacy. Then he or she should be required
to show users what is in the software they are being invited to use.
