>From time to time people ask here about the GPL, and whether you can
use GNU Radio in commercial products, etc.  The Software Freedom Law
Center recently issued "A Practical Guide to GPL Compliance" which
may help address some of the questions:

  1  Executive Summary

  This is a guide to effective compliance with the GNU General Public
  License (GPL) and related licenses. In accordance with the Software
  Freedom Law Center’s (SFLC’s) philosophy of assisting the community
  with GPL compliance cooperatively, this guide focuses on avoiding
  compliance actions and minimizing the negative impact when
  enforcement actions occur. It introduces and explains basic legal
  concepts related to the GPL and its enforcement by copyright
  holders. It also outlines business practices and methods that lead
  to better GPL compliance. Finally, it recommends proper
  post-violation responses to the concerns of copyright holders.
