Hello, For a certain niche market, I am considering selling a software application by pre-installing it on a small machine running FreeBSD, and then selling the whole thing. Are there any implications arising from the GPL (or other more-restrictive-than-BSD licensed) code in the tree? Would it be arguable that I was, in fact, selling only the hardware and my own software application, and giving away the (GPL- and BSD-licensed) open source software for free? I presume that the GPL would require me to at least make the source code of the GPL-covered parts of FreeBSD available on request (Section 3(b)), given that I would not be including the FreeBSD source code (it simply wouldn't be required) in the installation.
This bridge must have been crossed before. Does anyone have any experience here? -- Paul. mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]
