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.

However DRM is modifying the binary. For this to pass the gpl one would need the source of the drm and of the binary. If the app was published as the binary of just the source then there would be no problem
