Understanding Redhat License
My Query is regarding the license issue of RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).As far as I know ,RHEL had become commercial after Redhat Linux 9.Today to use RHEL , we have to get a licensed copy of RHEL from RedHat.
The following are my queries.
1 ) Linux is free software and it uses GPL License. I want to know
after RedHat had become commercial , RHEL is using some other
license apart from General Public License.
2) According to Freedom 1 of GPL ,A free software can be
copied and redistributed to others .
So if RHEL is a free software , and anybody is having a Licensed
copy of RHEL from Redhat , and he wants to redistribute to his
friends, then he can do it based on my understanding of the above
Ofcourse the thing is that he will not get support from RedHat.
These are some of my queries regarding RHEL. If I am wrong in my
understanding , please correct me.
