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.

No licence/law is perfect, it needs to adapt to ensure its goals are upheld in a changing world.


Even when those changes are EXACTLY what your license is supposed to protect from?
