Re: LGPL and Java

Hi DWN Editors,

Your article about LGPLd JARs forcing Java code to be opened/licensed
under the LGPL is incorrect. The LGPL on Java libraries works exactly
the same as it does for C libraries, Perl modules, or any other
language's concept of separate code modules.

It would be nice if something could be done about this (preferrably
before next week, when some Java libraries will already have been
rereleased with shittier licenses).

(And, on principle, I would avoid reporting on something on Slashot ever
