            Re: GPL?!?
            I don't see the problem. Charging for the distribution of GPL'ed code is quite frequent. The FSF itself used to charge for a tape with GNU sources (far more than the tape cost).

            If you like, pay the fee once and then redistribute the code yourself.

            Luca really doesn't get it. I don't know if he wrote it all himself and just doesn't understand the point of the GPL, or if his code incorporated someone else's GPL code and he's trying to obfuscate the issue, but as long as it is GPL'd code, then downloading from someone else's paid for copy is legal. Regardless of whether its for personal or business use. As long as you obey the provisions of the GPL yourself.

            Of course it is GPL. You get the program licensed under GPL if you pay 99 EUR. You then have the right to redistribute it modified or unmodified as often and as long you please. So as soon as one buyer puts it's on his homepage, you will be able to download it for free.

            No, just that they be obtainable.
