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.

Right. Some random dude on the internet knows better how the GPL works than the guy and organisation that wrote it.

Does David know that you are this much of a dick towards people using his site?

I was quoting Richard Stallman, and as much as I disagree with many things that he says, I'll take his word over the opinion of an FSF blogger (who has no legal background) any-day. If you can't provide case-law to make your case then you should just quit talking. Behaving like a 12 year old isn't going to win you any friends.
