Provided that you own a copy of the source code, modifying and compiling it in order to run it is not infringing per the Copyright Act; no implicit license is needed for that. The implicit license is needed for downloading the source code lawfully, prior to any compiling taking place. I've pointed others to it, but please check out 17 USC 117.
Has it been tested in court? In relation to no-explicit-license source code?
But hey... it's fun to hide in anonymity, right?
The problem with source code is that compiling it is not allowed implicitly. Compiling source code is be like recording an audio version of the book.
No license is as bad as GPL.
Really? I mean.... this is a seriously uninformed comment. No license is just that - no license. Just because you can see the code, does not give you permission to use it. A licence gives you permission to use it. License quite literally means permission. GPL is a licence, thus is a permission, even under strict permission.
So... GPL = permission. No license = no permission. So how are they equal?
If you want to use GPL code, your own code has to be GPL. The GPL isn't viral or dangerous.
That is not true. You have to license your code under GPL terms when distributing. Simple as that. GPL is not applicable to things that aren't being distributed and as a copyright owner, you are not forced to use GPL for your own code.
Furthermore close knit teams know perfectly well when to leave each other alone and know each others' work habits.
As for people who work from home, it's total BS. These people work no harder than anyone else and, in case of children, are in a house that is not conducive to concentration. Working longer hours is not the same as being more productive. There is such thing as a separation of work space and home space that gets in the way and kills performance and concentration.
However, working remotely is not a bad thing per se. It just has to be regularly interchanged with working in the office.
I would pull something of your's, but your comment history suggests that you can't read or express yourself in more than one sentence.
