2015/03/07 - Defending the GPL

SWIG is a proud member of the Software Freedom Conservancy who has recently announced that they will be supporting a lawsuit to defend an alleged violation of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Ensuring this software license, the same one that protects the SWIG source code, is not abused and is actively defended in a court of law is important for everyone using the license.

Conservancy is supporting Christoph Hellwig's lawsuit against VMware over GPL violations on Linux. VMware have stated that they would not comply with the GPL after many patient years of negotiations by Christoph and the Conservancy. More information is in the Conservancy's FAQ on the lawsuit.

If you have benefited or enjoyed the fruits of SWIG, it is because the SWIG developer's chose to use a software license to ensure it remains freely available. Please consider supporting Christoph and Conservancy including their fund raising appeal to defend our license.
