Submission + - Amazon Kindle License & TOU GPL Violation 1

m6ack writes: The Amazon.com Kindle License Agreement and Terms of Use clearly states under 3. Device and Software clearly denies many of its customers' basic rights per it's software, including right to distribution and right to create derivative works from it's Linux based Kindle device. Looks like a pretty blatant GPL violation to me. Have they already lost their license to distribute per the GPL?

Amazon Kindle License & TOU GPL Violation

  • As they state that: "Software" means the Reading Applications and all software on the Kindle (including any updates/upgrades to that software), and any related documentation that we make available to you.

    I would say that they are placing restrictions on the GPL portions of the Android operating system and should either have to change the license agreement to cover only the Reading Applications (as long as there is no GPL usage there) and then provide full source to all GPL and LGPL software.
