|Subject:||Sharing the GPL source code, with value addition by vendor specific to his hardware?|
|Date:||Mon, 11 Oct 2010 12:19:04 +0530|
I write this email to get an answer for the question “Can the vendor charge for the GPL source code, for his value addition to the source code?”
In one such case, there is a vendor, who has done value addition to the GPL source code to make the GPL code work on his hardware platform. He claims to have invested huge effort to make the GPL source code to work on his platform. So he wants to charge for the source code separately.
According to the GPL policy, is any vendor allowed to charge for the source code for his device specific value addition? Or is he required to keep his value addition as open source?
I will be more delighted to answer any queries in this regard. I appreciate earnest answers and thank in advance.
With Best Regards, Saliya
