SongBird est un lecteur de musique Open Source. Voir http://getsongbird.com/.
Quand on installe la version Windows, le premier lancement présente une EULA qu'il faut accepter pour continuer.
Cette EULA précise que certains fichiers binaires peuvent contenir du code en provenance de VLC. Il est indiqué aussi que le produit est conposé de deux ensembles : le player lui même, et les "add-ons". La licence du Player est la GPL, mais les add-ons sont propriétaires.
Jusqu'à présent, je croyais qu'il n'était pas possible de distribuer un programme dérivé de code GPL en y ajoutant des plugins propriétaires. Est-ce un précédant, ou ai-je raté un épisode ?
Ci-dessous, texte complet de l'EULA :
