Linux developers who contribute code to the kernel cannot rescind those contributions, according to the software programmer who devised the GNU General Public Licence version 2.0, the licence under which the kernel is released.
Open source vendor Red Hat has changed its licensing and in future all company projects that choose to use the GNU General Public Licence version 2 or the Lesser General Public Licence version 2 will have to include language from the GPLv3 that provides violators with time to rectify their offence.
