MythTV will always be GPL.  With so many contributers they wouldn't be
able to get copyright from all of the devs over the years in order to
close the source.  And if they did, it would just be forked anyway.

I don't think anyone wants to close the source anyway.

Schedules Direct will likely help systems resellers as well.  Being
able to sell a product where you have confidence in the listing data
is good.  And the more integrators of MythTV there are the better, as
they will help polish the product and hopefully submit their patches
to MythTV.
