¿Pertenece el #OpenSorces a alguien?

De acuerdo a xataka ( ) #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!"

#GPL #OSS #OpenSource #FOSS #Software

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.

Hi all, going to do a live coding stream soon making an OSS #PHP project in #emacs using #gitlab ci and #docker.

Can some one give a quick crash course on the differences between OSS licences? #GPL vs #AGPL vs #GPL3 vs #MIT vs #Apache.


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 #Linux #GPL #copyleft

@crossgolf_rebel @holarse Unser Quellcode steht unter der #GPL und ist im Git, wird später auch nach #Github übertragen.

Aber für die allgemeine Verwendung ist das schon recht spezifisch auf @holarse zugeschnitten.

@ConnyDuck As long as they made the source code available, they didn’t necessarily violate the cornerstone of #GPL, through attribution is always the best way to go.

With VMware finally announcing its plans to remove the non-complying #GPL code, Hellwig decides not to appeal. The VMware case wraps up:


#Fuchsia exists to get rid of #GPL that somewhat resists to #corporate embrace extend extinguish usual tactics.

Android community control is just an illusion and all developers knows this (even when they don’t like to say it):

There is no real openness in #Google projects: whatever the #license, #patents, political pressure and good ol' money ensure they control everything they touch.

@qwazix @mala

@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

What are some notable examples of successfully monetizing desktop #GPL free software?

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.

Oh, I did not know an EUPL existed. Interesting:

> EUPL is the first open source licence to be released by an international governing body.


@tux0r @wizzwizz4 @poetgrant

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.

Using #MIT, #CC0 and so on is much like saying: I don't care, do what you want with this.

It's not donating software to the commons, it's throwing it at the world like if it was #garbage.

I agree that we need a stronger and more reaching #Copyleft than #GPL or #AGPL.

As if the billions from #Fortnite weren't enough, once a mega corp is successful it has to spread into every adjacent market for no apparent reason.

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. 😞
