I suppose Linus’s remark remains…
Can we please just mark the API/ABI as GPL-only and be done with it?
Nvidia has received considerable leeway for years and nothing good has come out of it.
I’m not sure what you mean here. The Nvidia binary module is already infringement, just no one interested in enforcement/compliance efforts :)
Agree, but in fact there is a difference between EXPORT_SYMBOL and EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL and it matters as copyright law usually takes an author’s intention into account.
It would be interesting to see the outcome, since NVIDIA definitely relies on Linux for its HPC market.
They maintain a FreeBSD port of their driver for some reason, guessing that such a move would empower more HPC on FreeBSD so yes please :)
