GPL Violations By D-Link and Boxee

April 18th, 2011 04:50 admin Leave a comment Go to comments


An anonymous reader submitted a link to a bit of a rant on GPL issues connected to D-Link and Boxee. They spend quite a bit of time explaining ‘Tivoization is a dangerous attempt to curtail users’ freedom: the right to modify your software will become meaningless if none of your computers let you do it. GPLv3 stops tivoization by requiring the distributor to provide you with whatever information or data is necessary to install modified software on the device.’
