Did VMware Flout Open Source License Terms?

By Jack M. Germain

The Software Freedom Conservancy earlier this month announced that it was funding a lawsuit filed by Linux kernel developer Christoph Hellwig against VMware in the district court of Hamburg in Germany. The conservancy entered a grant agreement with Hellwig for the legal action. Its funding of the legal action is part of the program activity of its GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers. The suit alleges that VMware failed to comply with terms of the GNU General Public License version 2, or GPLv2.
