Author: JT Smith

An anonymous reader writes: "In response to the escalating attacks on Open Source Software from proprietary software vendors, Lineo has announced a new tool which is intended to assist developers in identifying the licenses within system software components. The tool is said to identify up to 40 different software
licenses including GPL, LGPL, BSD, Artistic, and many others. The tool, along with a new Lineo "anti-FUD" initiative, is announced in an open letter from Lineo VP Tim Bird to the Embedded Linux and Open Source community."
