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.

This is why big projects like OpenOffice require copyright assignment for inclusion into the official tree. The author of VLC *couldn't* dual license it even if he wanted to because he very likely doesn't hold the rights to all the contributions in the tree.
