Re: OT: GPL Question



HI


You are misapplying the correct link information to the wrong question.

''...You can modify GPL'd software and include it within a proprietary
software program, you just can not distribute it. That is, a
non-distributing end-user can do whatever they want with GPL'd software.
The GPL does not require that all derivative works be under the GPL,
only derivative GPL works that are distributed to others.

You can make private modifications to software licensed under the GPL
and retain exclusively rights over your modifications as long as you do
not distribute the software in source or binary form to a third party. ...''


That's what the link says... it is saying that you can use GPL code in
your proprietary PROGRAM, ie, link to GPL code, but the resulting hybrid
is not distributable UNLESS you GPL your code too.  That sounds
completely correct to me.

HOWEVER the OP is asking about a "proprietary product",


I wasnt answering the original question. I was only replying to one of the comments specifically about the possibility about including GPL'ed code in a proprietary product. You can include it but not redistribute the result

Rahul
