Excuse me on a little slip-up I made during reading the license. I accidently moved my eyes too fast to the another article mistaking the 5. Conveying modified source versions with 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
It did raise me another issue I would like some verification on:
6. Conveying Non-Source Forms
Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided, in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly documented (and with an implementation available to the public in source code form), and must require no special password or key for unpacking, reading or copying.
It hasn't said anything about conveying modified versions. Does this mean that as long as it is documented and referenced (and licensed of course) that no additional license is required?
9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However, nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or modify any covered work.
Does that mean theoretically that anyone may keep a hold of all my data as long as they don't open, modify or distribute the works any further?
To sketch a situation, does that mean that a service like git is allowed to accept all my files, both closed source and open? Theoretically it is possible to use it as your development station and have others download their closed source products from there and claim they are all developmental builds.
That's what I got from it. I'd like some more information on this, please! Maybe I did read it wrong.
As long as everything is open source and free and available, what are your rights as a developer (not as a teacher!) for private use OR commercially (deployment of free software)
