A conversation with Bradley Kuhn

The H talks with Bradley Kuhn, noted GPL compliance enforcer, about whether there should be more people patrolling the GPL perimeter and what tools and techniques a potential protector should take into battle.

The H: You do some GPL enforcement and Harald Welte is also doing a lot in Germany but your time is naturally limited. Do you think we need more people enforcing the GPL and if yes, what advice would you give them?

Bradley Kuhn: It's worth noting that there are basically three centres of (what I would I call) community-oriented GPL enforcement activity: Harald's work in Germany, Conservancy's work in the USA and France (and occasionally Australia), and FSF's work in a number of places.
