Re: Transity: GPL-licensed but Free only for Non-Commercials

So I agree that the language, as worded, seems like it might not be binding... But it at least reflects a contradictory intent, if not a hard contradiction. The licensors are certainly confused. Has somebody tried contacting them to clarify their intent?

There was a similar case with LinuxSampler a few years ago, restricting

Debian and it was concluded that its license is inconsistent, nobody can
actually comply with it, because the GPL and the added restriction
contradict each other. It was also rejected from non-free
(undistributable software).
