FSF Issues Fresh Statement Over ZFS On Linux With GPL Enforcement

The Free Software Foundation has issued a fresh statement today concerning the recent ZFS file-system efforts on Linux, driven in large part by Canonical’s plans for shipping ZFS support in Ubuntu 16.04.

While Ubuntu continues moving forward with ZFS plans for the 16.04 LTS release, the Software Freedom Conservancy has said combining ZFS with Linux is a GPL violation as long as ZFS continues to be CDDL licensed by Oracle.
