Another main feature is the right to further copy and distribute.

ie under GPL owner also give away the right to further
copy and give away this software keeping the GPL intact.
So that the third receiver also has the right to further
distribute.

Here owner may or may not charge money for the software
being given away while the same is true for the receiver
of the software he may or may not charge money for further
distribution.

So the GPL is also called CopyLEFT (as against copyright)

hi there

I am a bit confused with the terms of GPL
What i know is that if a SW is reg. under GPL  and if the SW is
allowed to be dwnl then the owner must also give the source code along
with it,
now is there any more to it ?



bye ppl
