Brott mot GPL i iOS-applikationer


OpenLogic reviewed each of the apps identified as using open source code to determine whether they were complying with the terms of each license. 71% of the app using open source licenses were deemed non-compliant. This means, for Apache licensed code, that the license and/or the notices/attribution weren’t provided; and for GPL and LGPL the license wasn’t provided and/or no means to obtain the source code was provided. Additionally, some of the apps identified by OpenLogic as non-compliant also contained their own extensive EULAs that claimed sweeping copyright over the whole work, which simply cannot be true if open source code was utilized.

Att använda sig av öppen källkod är bra. Att inte respektera de licenser som utvecklarna själva satt på koden är mindre bra.
