News Item object code Соблюдение GPL в “Эпп Стор” компании “Эпл” by ineiev — last modified Jun 04, 2010 05:00 AM
Версия GNU Go для Ай-Фон в настоящее время распространяется в системе “Эпп Стор” компании “Эпл”. Однако, распространяется она не в соответствии с GNU GPL. Основное нарушение состоит в том, что “Эпл” налагает многочисленные юридические ограничения на пользование и распространение GNU Go в “Условиях пользования Ай-Тьюнс”, а это запрещено в разделе 6 GPL (второй версии). Итак, сегодня мы написали в “Эпл” и попросили устранить нарушения. Мы были бы счастливы, если бы “Эпл” распространяла эти программы на условиях GPL, но нам кажется, что они, к сожалению, скорее устранят затруднение, просто удалив GNU Go из “Эпп Стор”.

News Item ФСПО о процессе “Оракл против Гугл” и угрозе патентов на программы by ineiev — last modified Sep 11, 2010 11:29 AM
Как вы, скорее всего, слышали на некоторых сайтах новостей, компания “Оракл” подала в суд на “Гугл”, утверждая, что Android нарушает некоторые из ее авторских прав и патентов, связанных с Java. Пока о нарушении авторских прав известно слишком мало, обсуждать это; мы надеемся узнать больше по ходу процесса. Однако никто не заслуживает того, чтобы стать жертвой агрессии со стороны патентов на программы, и “Оракл” поступает нечестно, пользуясь своими патентами для нападения на Android.
