There are two rights associated. Rights to Usage Rights to Modify When you take a piece of code licensed under GPL and "modify" it, you are required to make your changes available and also under the same license ie. GPL. So the rights to modify comes with covenants in GPL. In the case of BSD and ASL, there is no such covenant. It may also be pertinent to know that under any license, the recipient cannot change the copyright ownership or the notice for eg. " ... The Regents of the University of California. All rights reserved. ..." -- thanks Saifi. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
