With the new one (without advertising clause), relicensing under the GPL is within the scope of the original license.
Only the copyright holder has the legal right to _relicense_ the work. I.e. change the license of the original copyright code. > Only person who can re-license something is the copyright holder. Wrong. The only person who can give _permission_ to sublicense is the copyright holder. Sub-license != _re_-license. Re-license ==> Changing the license. Once again, only the copyright holder can change the license of the work, i.e. re-license it. When you combine a modified-BSD-license (just so that David who doesn't understand assumptions grasps this) licensed, you are dual licensing the work, part of it is under the modifed-BSD license, and part of it is under the new license, for example the GPL. When you relicense a work, you can _remove_ the original license. This is not allowed with the modified-BSD license. _______________________________________________ Gnu-misc-discuss mailing list Gnufirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
