GNU, GPL, Open Source Some people swore to me that just because the free-software General Public License (GPL) clashes with the Apple App Store's Terms of Service (ToS), didn't mean that Apple would actually pull down GPLed apps. Well, Apple just did. Remi Denis-Courmont, a Linux developer of the popular VLC media player, has just announced that Apple had pulled the popular GPLed VLC media player from its App Store.

It's incredibly easy to find the GPL, and that is probably something you should do before ranting about it.

Here is a link to GPL v2, which is what VLC is released under:
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html

Read it.
