關於 Android 授權 (License) 的爭論:Linus Torvalds 的說法

昨天提到的「header file 與 GPL(v2) 的「衍生作品」...」,Linus Torvalds 也跑出來講話了:「Android: Sued by Microsoft, not by Linux

It seems totally bogus. We've always made it very clear that the kernel system call interfaces do not in any way result in a derived work as per the GPL, and the kernel details are exported through the kernel headers to all the normal glibc interfaces too.

他也不認為 header file (也就是提到的「kernel system call interfaces」) 會造成 GPLv2 內所提到的 derived work。
