+ - Boxee Explains GPL violation->

Submitted by Pvt_Ryan
Pvt_Ryan (1102363) writes "Tom Sella from Boxee, explains the GPL violation allegation.

"Yesterday there was some noise in the open source community that a utility included with a pre-release version of the Boxee Box software is licensed under the GPLv3. The utility, gpgv2, came in a pack of gpg utilities, including libgcrypt, which we use, and was erroneously included – but never used, and we subsequently removed it from the Boxee Box software. We have already put a new internal process in place for adding new F/OSS to Boxee and we are also doing a complete audit of our software to better document the licensing of the open source code we use.""
