Parent article: Sveasoft and the GPL
There is nothing wrong with having a GPL version lag behind a restricted version ... What's wrong with Sveasoft is that they don't own the copyright to the code, it surprised me a great deal that the FSF didn't have a problem with that.
If FSF didn't have a problem with that, it's just because FSF didn't know. The article says only that FSF doesn't have a problem with the support contract issue (i.e. with Sveasoft offering updates selectively to people who haven't exercised their GPL right to redistribute the code).
