Where is the evidence that PlanetDNS has VNC inside?
I'm interested in this issue because I'm not sure how we can demonstrate
that GPL'd code is inside the product if all we have are binaries. Does
anyone know the answer?
By the way, it is perfectly acceptable under the GPL for someone to take
your GPL'd work and make money from it. The rule is that they have to
distribute the source with the product binaries.
