Re: Legality of Fedora in production environment

Why wouldn't a hard copy of the GPL suffice ?

Because such laws are usually made by direct command from BSA and contain specific wording.

I heard some similar scary things about a law in my country (Romania) where exist a national registry for computer programs and you are supposed to use only software registered there. I don't know much about it as I am not an expert in law, but it seems the law is ignored by users and not enforced against free software (so far).

    The using of software in business and production environment can be a
    subject for legislative regulation. It can lead to some legal troubles
    of using of distributions like Fedora.

    Recently the appropriate laws in my country (Russia) have been
    significantly toughened. Now the police can check for illegal software
    usage by their own initiative (without request from the owner). The tax
    inspection demands that software should be registered at accounts
    departments.
