After reading EULA (http://www.redhat.com/licenses/rhel_us_2-1.html) it seems like they use GPL license.They are speaking about RHN, IMHO - because rpm's are under GPL or similar (BSD,PERL,...) licenses.
So we can buy one RH AS (ES,WS) box and install system for tens machines?
If yes, it's more or less the same model as we have for "regular" RH - we can install system for free; download and install updates for free;
and we must pay only when we
1) need RH support
2) use RHN
I am right?
How do you interpret paragraph I. A. section 4 (REPORTING AND AUDIT)?
What has GPL to do with the terms in aforementioned paragraph?
To quote the gpl:
**4.* You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise
to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will
automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties
who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will
not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in
*6.* Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions
on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
According to the gpl license if they distribute gpl binaries. They MUST
give the recipients' the full rights to the programs. If they don't they
lose the right to distribute it. So nothing prevents you from buying one
RHEL subscription, and copying the rpm to all of the rest of your systems.
There is no such thing as obsolete hardware.
Merely hardware that other people don't want.
