GNOME Project Announces Its Support for Software Freedom Conservancy

GNOME builds open-source and free software distributed under the LGPL (GNU Lesser General Public License) and GPL (GNU General Public License) licenses for almost two decades, and they’re proud members of the GNU Project. But to ensure that their work will continue to be free for everyone to use or redistribute, they make appeal to the community to follow the rules of the open source licenses before attempting to “borrow” their code and make it proprietary.
