Here is a question which I find rather interesting: Is in-house use of
GPLed software allowed?  It is quite clear that using GPLed software by
a single developer to run a commercial web server for example is
allowed.  But in the case of multiple developers inside a company one
could either argue that the company operates as an entity, or
alternatively that the company by letting one of their developers
combine GPLed software with their own product is forced to give her/him
the whole software under GPL.
