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.

Only with GPLv3 would it be a violation. There is no difference to Tivo case here, and their practice is legal. Disputing author clearly doesn't understand what rights has he given by applying the GPLv2 licence to his code.
