Oh poo, and what's the difference? None. None whatsoever but more marketing.

You can't distribute GPL'ed software unless you have the right to do it.

The promise makes quite sure to tell you you have no right[1], but you can
infringe that they won't sue *you*[2].

[1] => means you can't do it with GPL
[2] => means you can't do it with GPL3

If you want to do it with GPL'ed software, you need to obtain a RAND or RAND-Z
patent license. Who ever got it, could s/he please publish it?

Microsoft promised to give it to a company that asked for it in Portugal, and
they never fulfilled (even after insistence).

I know of several other people who have asked for it and never got it.

You need to stop believing in Santa.
