Going L-GPL, please correct me if i'm wrong, would allow companies to
use our video editor for their larger works, and sell it . Is this what
we want ?
I agree that for a library, like libmatroska/libebml, or frameworks like
gstreamer, this can be pretty interesting because they can strenghten
their position as standards with every single app using the library of
the framework, but why should we allow anybody to make profit from our
video editor ?
Steve, if you think about it, there is a much better reason to release
libmatroska/libebml under a L-GPL license than TCME ?
