GNU-Linux GPLv3 Software License Praised by SIFMA

mlrtime mlrtime writes  |  more than 7 years ago

mlrtime writes "On Tuesday, SIFMA (Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association) commended the Free Software Foundation and the Software Freedom Law Center for their significant work in introducing Version 3 of the General Public License (GPL). The GPL is the software license governing the GNU-Linux operation system as well as other software that is widely utilized within the private and public sectors, including many SIFMA members. Financial service firms ranging from investment banks to commercial banks utilize the GNU-Linux operating system as a platform for trading systems, databases and market data systems. SIFMA believes that the objections of the free and open source software community can be achieved consistently and in collaboration with the needs of large end-users, including those in the financial services industries.
