"When Joomla's Core Team announced its intentions to begin strict enforcement of the GNU General Public License, software developers who sell extensions started getting very worried. The problem in a nutshell: adding a plug-in or extension to a piece of GPL-licensed software creates a "combined work," and according to the GPL's wording, those plug-ins must also be released under the GPL or a GPL-compatible free software license."

Instead of arguing against the frivolous legal claims that dynamic linking GPL's their code, the wife, the kids and the family pet, let
commercial developers stew in their own pot for believing GPL nonsense.
