why dont you interview .....

After reading a few reply posts in the Interviews section
I wonder if an interview with someone in the business world, not connected to any specific distro or hardware to explain things like :-
Intellectual Property
Why some things are business secrets
what actually does the GPL mean
The rationale behind NVidias ( and others ) decision not to release its drivers
Basically an explanation as to why Business does what it does.

It seems that a lot of people on these forums have absolutely no idea of how business works.

I think you mean people don't understand conventional business models. Open source CAN work as a business model. But I agree, it would be interesting to hear something on some of those topics.
