No, this is false. The GPL clearly spells out the requirements for permission to copy and distribute, and therefore there is no promissory estoppel - anyone availing themselves of the license is explicitly informed of their obligations. It is only anti-GPL cranks (or lawyers raising every possible defense) who believe that they may avail themselves of the permissions of a license while rejecting its obligations. _______________________________________________ gnu-misc-discuss mailing list email@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
