Webinar: GPLv2 Licensing History

By community, Featured, legal, licensing, News, Webinar

This OpenChain Webinar features an overview of GPLv2 licensing fragmentation based on research initiated by Philippe Ombredanne of NexB and continued by Armijn Hemel of Tjaldur Software Governance Solutions. The key takeaway is that a significant number of variations exist (40 “vanilla” copies from the FSF or GNU website, 12 with the Linux kernel linking exception in the Linux kernel), but the impact of these variations is nuanced. The requirements do not change but the variability may throw errors for automation and review. Process awareness is required.
