General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=blahblah] David, if you remove the word "proprietary" from your original posting the answer is a resounding YES. If you really, really meant to use the P word then the answer is no. If you want to make a private customized version you can do anything you like, but if you plan to distribute the thing publicly you'll need to include the relevant embedded copyright and license notices and make the source code available - respecting the GPL that K-Meleon and it's multiple components are released under. http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html "the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights."[/quote]
