Dual-licensing: revoking the GPL

,----[ Quote ]
| Remember, less than 3 months later SUN announced MySQL acquisition.
|
| This paints a summary of what could happen to a DL company even if nobody's
| initial commitment is questioned.
|
| * DL Company dies: what happens to the IP/trademarks/licenses?
| * DL Company undergoes a change of control: what happens to the
| community?
| * DL company sells/gives its open source interest to a third party...
|
| Shouldn't we have some sort of open source prenuptial agreement applying to
| DL companies and their communities?

| dual-licensing process after the GPL3 solidifies. At present, the
| GPL3 is still being revised.

The Linux Kernel on a Dual Basis? *

,----[ Quote ]
| One solution to the debate about whether the Linux kernel should
| migrate to the almost-complete GPL version 3 (define) is to have
| the Linux kernel dual-licensed under GPL versions 2 and 3.
