mjsip GNU GPL license

Does anyone know how I can use GNU GPL licensed source together with my (propriatery) source ?

 

I would like to see what can be done with mjsip on a bb device, but don't want to waste time if I cannot use it on a commercial product.

 

Anyone has a clue ?

 

Thanks.

Re: mjsip GNU GPL license

afaik you can use it as a library. if you have to create this library it has to be licensed with GNU GPL, too.
if you integrate the project or part of it into your product you have to license the whole with GNU GPL.

just as far as i know, feel free to read the whole license Smiley Very Happy

There is no chance to use it. Your project automatically would get GPL code too

 

A library would only work if it would be licensed with LPGL.

Ups, It seems dpreussler is right Smiley Sad

 

Mjsip is released under GNU GPL so currently we are not allowed to use it as a library.

 

If anyone has any news regarding this subject please contact me or follow up on this thread.

 

Thank you guys for your comments.
