General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=bksening] Just to reply to JamesD and JohnHell, yes KMeleon is open source GNU General Public License, but the emphasis is on [b]GNU General Public License[/b], not the open source part. http://sourceforge.net/projects/kmeleon/develop It is because of the GPL that proprietary derivatives cannot be made, because (as you all have mentioned) the GPL requires derivative works must also be licensed open under the GPL. But take note, that's all because of the GPL, not simply open source. This is differentiated from other open source projects, eg. BSD licensed open source projects, which do not have "must remain open" clauses. Derivative works of these other open source projects can be made proprietary. But again, since KMeleon is GPL-licensed, derivative works must remain open.[/quote]
