Re: [PLUG] Which license?

Are you sure you have to fork it? I thought you could release your code to the community under the GPL and also take that same code, shrink-wrap it, slap a proprietary license on it and sell it in a store. But it would be the exact same code, just different licenses. This assume that you own the copyright of course.
