|In reply to Comment 19 (Thomas Frieden):|
Actually, this time you certainly *did* violate the GPL.You are distributing, from your website, an update floppy as well as an update ISO image. Both are distributed in archives containing the binary and a README, nothing else.Nowhere in the distribution is the GPL mentioned. Nowhere in the distribution is a written offer to send source code. And nowhere in the firmware appears to be any text fulfilling obligation 2(c) of the GPL, either (and considering the string "COMMODORE 64 BASIC X2" *is* in there, it can hardly be a space problem).Nowehere in the path from the front page of your website (linked in from the AW news item) all the way to actually downloading is the GPL'ed status of the software mentioned, either.So, once again, righteous indignation is probably not the best reaction to accusations --- *especially* when you *are* guilty as accused. (BTW, Hans-Joerg --- I haven't forgotten your mail, just have been oh so busy recently. I *will* reply one of these days. Short version --- I got the source within a couple of days, as well as an "oops, something went wrong. Will fix ASAP").
