Debian GNU/Linux developer Chris Lamb is taking the fight to those pushing the Commons Clause, a non-free licence, by setting up a two-man team to fork modules that add functionality to the in-memory database Redis, after the company that makes Redis put the modules under this licence and started to charge for them. Lamb is the current leader of the project but said he was doing this in a private capacity.
Linux developers who contribute code to the kernel cannot rescind those contributions, according to the software programmer who devised the GNU General Public Licence version 2.0, the licence under which the kernel is released.
Open source vendor Red Hat has changed its licensing and in future all company projects that choose to use the GNU General Public Licence version 2 or the Lesser General Public Licence version 2 will have to include language from the GPLv3 that provides violators with time to rectify their offence.
