[REBOL] Re: steel latest news.. pretty long... Ignore if you wish..

From: lmecir:mbox:vol:cz at: 17-Sep-2003 22:19

altough the subject is getting offtopic, I had to make a couple of comments, because less informed readers may be misled by the discussion:
> Yeah, anything you did before getting a commercial license is bound to
GPL (even while evaluating the software) and that's not much fun... this is an error, you aren't bound by the GPL if you aren't distributing code. Moreover, you aren't bound by the GPL if you are distributing code under a different license which has been agreed upon by the copyright owner(s).
> And then, even getting a commercial license does not free that code from
GPL... The code isn't "freed" from GPL in the sense, that everyone using the software legally under the GPL doesn't lose his right to do so. OTOH, the code distributed under a non-GPL license is "free from GPL" in the sense, that anybody using it isn't bound by the GPL at all, even though the software may have been released by the GPL too. -L
