Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

Then Stockfish is in clear violation of the App Store agreement, and if other derived work of Stockfish is removed from the App Store it would be consistent for Apple to also remove Stockfish until Tord releases it under another licence. // Christophe No, you're confused, Christophe. Stockfish is r...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

Is it OK or not, in a general context, to charge for a copy of Stockfish (either the engine alone or the engine and some GUI), without your explicit consent, provided that the seller abides by the GPL terms? My limited understanding is that the GPL is incompatible with the App-store. Therefore, to ...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

I think there was a GPL violation. This comes from the FAQ from the free software foundation: If you commercially distribute binaries not accompanied with source code, the GPL says you must provide a written offer to distribute the source code later. When users non-commercially redistribute the bin...

Re: Chess Tiger for iPod

As you can read, I did not say it was this comany or any other. // Christophe As I can read, I can make the difference between the preposition "not just THIS company" and the preposition "not THIS company" . ;) Now the reasons why you are now denying the assertions you made that day belong to you, ...

Re: Chess Tiger for iPod

Yes Sean, that's CT, don't worry :) Christophe yet explained here a few weeks ago that he received legal notices by other companies because he used "tiger" in the title (he especially mentioned a REALLY big company that also had an operating system whose name included "Tiger" too ;) ).

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

The derivatives are bringing money to Apple. Do you think they want them out? If pressed to act, they will first ask the developpers to comply with the GPL. I am not even sure about the GPL compliance of these commercial Stockfish copies. Two examples: - Do they distribute the license text together...
