Apple Do you like VLC on your iPhone or iPad? You don't yet have it installed, but want to? Well, then you'd better be quick about it, as some VLC contributors are unhappy with the fact that VLC is distributed through Apple's App Store, violating the GPL the video player is licensed under. At least, that's what some think.

... the author should dual license with a BSD-style license. The best of both worlds?

Unless of course he's using GPL'd code himself. In which case he probably shouldn't have knowingly published his app to the App Store in the first place.

It's not the same guy who published the VLC app and filed the complaint. VLC for iOS is not made by VideoLAN but by a third-party called Applidium, though it's based on VLC's source code.
