¿Pertenece el #OpenSorces a alguien?
De acuerdo a xataka ( https://n9.cl/5zd7 ) #Huawei no puede usar #AOSP de #GAFAM pues podria estar violando la #licencia #GPL ya que esta solo permite el uso de sus productos a los propios dueños unicamente.
En resumen, las patentes #libres son igual de privativas que las otras, segun los mentirosos y embusteros de Xataka.
Si quieren hacer propaganda y dedicarse a mentir, mejor que se cambien el titulo a Xataka hacemos #lobby para los poderosos
GPL is a hostage negotiation, or at best barter. I'll give you my code if you give me yours. There is nothing "free" about it in my mind.
MIT/BSD/Apache is true freedom "You can have my code, no strings attached, do what you want with it, just promise you will tell people it is open-source and who wrote it!"
Interesting article on the US export regulations as regards to the Huawei ban which shows that it is even more viral than the GPL. Makes me wonder why some people and companies are so against the GPL when they have been operating under an even more viral regime that, worse, is controlled by one entity only.
On our blog, we discuss, compare & contrast the two primary options available for backporting #GPLv3's termination provisions to #GPLv2 : the Kernel Enforcement Statement Additional Permission and the Red Hat Cooperation Commitment https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/may/11/termination-backports/ #Linux #GPL #copyleft
With VMware finally announcing its plans to remove the non-complying #GPL code, Hellwig decides not to appeal. The VMware case wraps up:
Android community control is just an illusion and all developers knows this (even when they don’t like to say it): https://gbl08ma.com/developing-for-android-is-like-being-a-demonetized-youtuber/
@aral TIL that if a #Google engineer remove your name from a #GPL codebase you contributed to for 6 months and when called to account coordinates the `git rebase` to remove you from the #history of the project (a @conservancy member) but accidentally squash some of your patches in anyway, drawing obvious conclusions about the people involved and their motivations is... #PARANOIA ! ! !
Don't forget this.
Don't be #paranoic!
They shall do no #Evil! :-D
Thinking about changing my little todo list project to #GPL instead of #MIT , but it's hard to jump. The GPL is long, hard to understand, and using a TL;DR explanation is kind of like trusting that they created an accurate summary of the GPL without actually analyzing it yourself.
I like the MIT license because it's brief, I'm not liable for damage, and I don't have a lot of time to go into deep analysis of a long license like GPL, but I'm eager to move to GPL.

Close. I think you mean "release some parts under GPL and thus force everyone else _releasing the same parts with changes_ to publish the source".
GPL only applies for releasing software. If you never release the software, you don't need to release the sources along it. A modified GPL web server doesn't need to have its source released if you put said server on your domain.
AGPL exists due this.

@tfb But if the company is the copyright holder, it may dual-license their software: make some parts published under GPL, and thus force everyone else publish the sources, but keep the exclusive right to include it into their own proprietary s/w.
Or am I not understanding the terms of #GPL correctly?
And the second part basically means that "open-source" is simply a catch to get free labor?
Then that's yet another reason why the developers should not contribute to such a software.
Oh, I did not know an EUPL existed. Interesting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Union_Public_Licence
> EUPL is the first open source licence to be released by an international governing body.
Uhm... I think you are a bit confused (if you are not trying to troll me 🤣).
Permissive licenses set the whole work they "protect" under the threat of being taken and closed by evil companies.
It's not donating software to the commons, it's throwing it at the world like if it was #garbage.
Who even goes to the Epic Store?
GOG has a differentiator at least, DRM-free. What does Epic have?
"We're Epic and we can do this because we have billions in cash at hand. what u gonna do about it"?
It's funny how cancerous corporations infecting everything are, but some of them then have the balls to call the #GPL cancer. 😞
