Legal Documents Relative to the TUNES Project

We would have liked to put the whole project under John Carter's bugroff license (local copy), but we fear that this would limit the availability of our software and ideas. We fight for a world where such a license would be effectively possible, and the way we did was by committing ourselves to the GNU GPL and GNU LGPL, that turn the copyright system against those that use it to limit other people's freedom to use, modify, and share software.
