This is completely illegal. At least in my country, Spain. Sourcefire
should be aware that their license it's under the control of the
country laws they are selling their services to. I think this it's going
too fast. I agree with the new licensing terms, but this is an
error. I think Sourcefire should take a look at their licensing terms
or the license will not be legal in many countries.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
