Attention All Shoppers Skype Available at Walmart Press Release Round Two

I just noticed a new Skype press release "Skype and Wal-Mart Partner to Bring Internet Communications to the Masses", floating around that reads nearly the same as the one they put out on May 14th and was reported on here at VoIP Monitor. This isn't new information to avid readers and writers on VoIP related news, but perhaps the masses weren't buying enough Skype minutes at Wal-Mart checkout lane. Perhaps it's a last ditch attempt to get the word out to customers before pulling the plug on this partnership. Share your thoughts or let us know if you've actually purchased Skype minutes or products from a Wal-Mart.

Skype Convicted on GPL Violation in German Court

SMCWSKP100.jpgIt appears that Skype was convicted for selling a VoIP phone, the SMCWSKP 100, made by SMC Networks, which uses the Linux kernel, without also supplying the source code, which is a prerequisite of GPLv2.

Skype apparently tried to rectify its mistake by providing a pamphlet with the packaging that provided a URL to where the source code could be obtained. However, that was not enough to satisfy the open source purists that brought the matter to the attention of the German court nor the court itself.

Summaries of the proceedings can be found here and here - translations from German to English over the net are a bit dicey but the gist of the matter is reasonably clear if you use Alta Vista's Babelfish.

In short, anyone who sells a Linux-based product must provide the source code with the product or face the consequences in the country in which it is sold. At least that's the case in Germany.

Exactly what punishment Skype can expect to suffer for its transgression, however, is not exactly clear.
