I've noticed that gr-modtool keeps FSF's copyright assignment for a lot of
boilerplate (CMakeLists.txt, QA code, etc.) but puts a hook for the end
user's copyright statement in block source files. Is this a pretty standard
way of doing things?
Yes, pretty much. Of course, this is just my understanding of how
copyright of works is handled, and obviously IAMAL.
I assume you meant 'IANAL'. It kind of reads the opposite way :)

Yeah, typo....


Discuss-gnuradio mailing list
With the understanding that I will *not* take any answers as *actual* legal advice, is it generally reasonable to say:
1) If I copy a gnuradio block (copyright FSF), tweak a few things, and redistribute, FSF retains copyright and I have no copyright to the changes
2) If I build a block from the ground up, it's still GPLv3 since it depends on gnuradio, but I may either maintain copyright or assign it to FSF
