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.

You can copy the app by syncing it to itunes, and then to another device. This is such a non-issue that it is pathetic.


...to a maximum of five devices, which is a limitation not allowed by the GPL. Ergo, GPL violation.
