For those not In The Know, the GPL license basically allows anyone to do whatever they want with the code, even modify and sell it, as long as the source remains freely and publicly available."

"This means that if a person wished, they could modify the Doom source and sell a game based off of it, providing that all the art, music, sounds, and levels were different (id still holds a copyright on everything included in the IWAD)."
