He just has no spirit of OPEN SOURCE.

That was made abundantly clear when he pulled this crap with SolidCoin 1.04:

It says "all copies". How can that not include binary distributions?

Be that as it may, it's not clearly defined within the license what "the Software" constitutes. It's not clear for me, since I'm not sure whether what is common knowledge and what would hold in a court would coincide. Consider how elaborate the GPL license is.

Well since RealSolid distributed SolidCoin both in source and in binary form, he covered his bases and violated the license no matter how you look at it. Isn't that just swell?

If you use a gpl project, your project must be gpl too.
You can choose to keep your contributions under alternate licencing. Only the original GPL code that is used stays GPL if used and must be ackowledged as such.
Like building a proprietary/end user licensed front end on GPL framework.....it happens every day.

Guys Bitcoins is not licensed by GPL.  It is the MIT license.

It allows closed source project.
It allows propretary projects.
It allows derivitve works.
It allows the derivitive to be licensed by any license the author wishes (no copyleft provision).

The ONLY thing it requires is the copyright and notice to be included with any derived distribution.
Somehow RealSolid still managed to figure out how to fuck it up (as well as trying to copyright his stolen work).

RS just wanted to pass the MIT licensed Bitcoin code off as his own work. As a benefit from this, he could attack other chains that copied his ideas for being unauthorized derivative works of SolidCoin.

Bitcoin is backed by the full faith and credit of YouTube comments.
