MySQL Rejects GPL Version 3 For Now

Filed under: GPL — tuxicity @ 6:29 am

Kaj Arno, MySQL’s VP of community relations, said in a posting on his blog in late December that the copyright notice in the MySQL source code will change from stating the code is covered by “either GPL Version 2 or later” licenses to “GPL Version 2 only.”
