Submission + - Popular Android ROM Accused of GPL Violation (thepowerbase.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A petition has recently been started to get the developer of the popular Android "MIUI" ROM, Chinese based Xiaomi, to comply with the GPL.

While Android itself is licensed under the Apache 2.0 License, and therefore does not actually require derivative works to be FOSS, the Linux kernel itself is GPL-licensed and needs to remain open.

Unless Xiaomi intends to develop a replacement for the Linux kernel, they need to make their modifications public.
