Defence of the GPL realm (The H)

The H talks
with Bradley Kuhn about GPL compliance.
"Certainly we're in an era where lots of people are scrambling to create business models dancing around the issue of GPL compliance, and in using GPL enforcement in nefarious ways. Our community already has too much of that kind of activity, and I certainly don't want more of that.
If, however, someone wanted to start another non-profit charity to do enforcement, I'd certainly welcome it and help them do it. I also encourage any individuals who hold copyrights in projects that Conservancy currently does active enforcement for – namely, BusyBox, Linux, and Samba – to get in touch with me and join our coalition. That's an easy way for those who hold copyrights to get involved with the work Conservancy's already doing in this area."
