I was thinking of charging a fee for a commercial product and posting full-source code of all the modified GPL code it uses for free.
Would GPL force me to provide the source code for an entire commercial product?
Also, could I could abstract all of the modified GPL software into a separate shared library (e.g., libgplmod.so) and post all of the code for free, then create a closed-source commercial product that uses something in 'libgplmod' and charge a fee?
If GPL forces me to provide the source-code of any software that links to 'libgplmod' then you would have to rely on the following:
Some people are not going to want to deal with the source code; they can choose to pay a fee instead. What they would get from the fee could include the compiled binaries, links to the source code, manual, consulting options, ect...
in order to many any money...
