GPL vs. Skype Back In Court

zIRtrON Re:Simple Solution (369 comments)

Probably a marketing trick riding on the back of the success of the GPL.

I do telco work and haven't used skype for a while. Some end user though, caught me by surprise saying, "Have you used the new skype business - you can do transfers now, which is really helpful". Sounds good for the small business crowd, or web designers :P

Thanks for your comment Bruce

Wikipedia: CmdrTaco & Country Singer Started /

zIRtrON (48344) writes "If you read the wikipedia entry of a Rob Malda — of slashdot fame, apparently "In 1997 Rob Malda and Jeff Bates created Slashdot while undergraduates of Hope College [1]. After running the site for two years on a shoestring [2], they sold the site to, which was later acquired by VA Linux Systems [3]. Malda now runs the site out of the SourceForge, Inc. office in Dexter, MI [4]." — Is Jeff Bates a country singer...? I'm not up on /. history despite having read it for nearly a decade. How can anything on wikipedia be taken as 'fact'?"

Open Standard implementation, Open Source license?

zIRtrON writes "Gday Slashdot, I've written an implementation to an open standard. I'm dropping back to part-time work in order to work more with the software I've written (Telephony Industry). I was considering a dual-licensing model with the GPL a la Asterisk and MySQL. Being an open standard and considering the dual-licensing — am I in any hot water whether I go for the GPLv2 or GPLv3? I'm not as keen to go for a FreeBSD style license because I would like to be able to maintain a little bit of control over it and be able to make some money. Any good/bad stories people know?"
