Copyleft makes the (java) world turn around

Glad to see a little bit more copyleft being adopted by Android now that they are using parts of the OpenJDK class library. Even if the GNU Classpath Exception is probably the weakest form of copyleft there is. It is interesting how the GPL makes frenemies like Oracle and Google work together.

  1. It is nice to see this. Google’s decision will hopefully retire some irrational fears of copyleft. Maybe someday we’ll see glibc on Android too.
