Subject: Bradly Spengler interview (GRSecurity) (Blatant GPL violators vs GCC
 and Linux Kernel)

Thought you might be interested:

GRSecurity violates both the Linux kernel's copyright and the GCC 
copyright by forbidding redistribution of the patches (in their Access 
Agreement): which are non-seperable derivative works of the kernel and 
(in the case of the GCC plugins) GCC. Yes: threatening consequences if a 
licensee redistributes is a restraint on the "rights" given by the 
original copyright owners. Those "plugins" he is talking about as-well 
as the kernel patch violate the GPLv2. The GPLv2 _FORBIDS_ adding 
additional clauses not-within the GPL between the derivative-licensee 
and the down-the-line licensee. Bradly Spengler / OpenSourceSecurity are 
violating this stipulation, blatantly, in writing. They are also 
violating the "no additional restrictions" stipulation in the GPLv2. 
They ARE violating the Linux and the GCC copyright.
