Windows Well, well, well. We all know Apple's App Store policies are incompatible with the GPL, and as such, software using this license can't be distributed in the App Store. So, what about Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Marketplace? Well, whereas the App Store doesn't specifically mention the GPL (Apple's terms are simply incompatible), Microsoft drops the pretence and simply bans GPL and GPL-esque licenses outright.

Actually Skype got sued for not distributing source for a product manufactured by a third party and which Skype was only reseller to...forcing them to drop all support for that product.

GPLv3 is a borg licence, it doesn't play well with other licences.
