This seems rather confused.  SISSL is copyleft (but rather odd), and
copyleft code stays copyleft by design.  I don't understand the point
about making money and Bioteam.  Surely you explicitly want people to be
able to provide a support service.

Beware of software patent threats outside the coverage of the SISSL,
which I'm not sure is very clear.
