GNU, GPL, Open Source "The Free Software Foundation is up in arms over Apple's iTunes Store Terms of Service, suggesting that these terms fundamentally conflict with the terms of the GNU Public License. The foundation has warned Apple that a version of GNU Go distributed by the App Store makes Apple liable to comply with GPL terms that allow free sharing of code, but warned that its 'Usage Rules' violate those terms. The fallout could potentially affect any app that uses GPLed code."

After reading some of the comments on the actual story, there appears to be a very strong disdain for the GPL.

I really wouldn't be surprised if Apple at some point bans any GPL-base coded software from the App-Store in the near future.
