GPLizing BSD licensed sources
Dear Legal people,
I am looking for a quick hint. lush project ships sources of modified
version of libsvm which is released under BSD license. Since lush is
GPLed, and they heavily modified those libsvm sources, they added a
generic copyright + GPL excerpt on top above original BSD license.
for an example.
Although no clause of BSD license seems to be violated, I still have
some unpleasant aftertaste. Am I right that technically it is ok?
or may be file needs cleaner header which would state explicitly that
only modifications since original version LIBSVM-2.5 are under
GPL and copyrighted by lush authors?
Thanks in advance for the clarifications
