View Full Version : MySQL changes license to avoid GPLv3

January 6th, 2007, 10:49 PM

MySQL owns the copyright to its database code so can change the license any time it likes (and indeed offer the software under dual licenses). While the company is not ruling out a change to GPL v3 once it is completed, it is hedging its bets in case it does not like the results.

How would they be forced to switch to GPL3, I thought there was a choice?
