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.

Then I have a misunderstanding somewhere.

As far as I know, I can take any GPL'ed code, compile and package it, and sell it to customers, as long as I make the original code and also my modifications available in readable source code format on request.

Isn't this exactly what RedHat does?
