The latter is just plain bullshit.  There are even many proprietary
products which bundle gpg or other GPL code with their proprietary or
MPL licensed code.  Not just small companies but large ones with huge
and conservative legal departments.  The actual requirements for
distribution are easy to fulfill and are actually easier with the GPLv3
than with the v2.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
