I-Software Freedom Conservancy imangalele uVizio kwiqonga leSmartCast

IGnome yamangalela

 

Umbutho wamalungelo oluntu I-Software yoLondolozo lweNkululeko (CFS) uye wamangalela nkampani Viziokunye naye ukungathotyelwa kweemfuno ze-GPL ukusabalalisa i-firmware kwi-platform ye-SmartCast esekelwe kwii-TV ezihlakaniphile.

Iinkqubo ziphawuleka ngenxa yokuba eli lityala lokuqala embalini, elingafakwanga egameni lomthathi-nxaxheba yophuhliso oluphethe amalungelo epropathi ekhowudi, kodwa ngomthengi, apho ikhowudi yomthombo yamacandelo ahanjiswe phantsi kwelayisensi ye-GPL ayizange ibonelelwe.

Ukugcina inkululeko yesoftware, usebenzisa ikhowudi phantsi kwelayisensi ye-copyleft kwiimveliso zayo, umenzi unyanzelekile ukuba anike ikhowudi yomthombo, kubandakanywa ikhowudi yokusebenza ephuma kuyo kunye nemiyalelo yokufakela. Ngaphandle kwezenzo ezinjalo, umsebenzisi ulahlekelwa ulawulo kwisofthiwe, akakwazi ukulungisa ngokuzimeleyo iibhugi, ukongeza iimpawu ezintsha, kunye nokususa izinto ezingeyomfuneko.

Utshintsho lunokufuneka ukukhusela ubumfihlo bakho, ukulungisa imiba yangaphakathi ala ukuyilungisa umenzi, kunye nokwandisa ubomi besixhobo emva kokuba inkxaso yaso esemthethweni iphelile okanye ukuphelelwa lixesha okwenziweyo ukuvuselela ukuthengwa kwemodeli entsha.

I-software ye-Freedom Conservancy ibhengeze namhlanje ukuba ifake isimangalo ngokumelene neVizio Inc. ngenxa yoko ibiza ukungaphumeleli okuphindaphindiweyo ukuthobela kunye neemfuno ezisisiseko zeLayisensi yoLuntu Jikelele (GPL).

Isimangalo sityhola ukuba iimveliso zikamabonakude zikaVizio, ezisekelwe kwinkqubo yayo yeSmartCast, ziqulathe isoftwe ethathwe nguVizio ngokungafanelekanga kuluntu lwabaphuhlisi ababenenjongo yokuba abathengi babe namalungelo akhethekileyo okuguqula, ukuphucula, ukwabelana, kunye nokufaka kwakhona iinguqulelo ezilungisiweyo zesoftware.

I-GPL yilayisenisi ye-copyleft eqinisekisa abasebenzisi bokuphela inkululeko yokubaleka, ukufunda, ukwabelana, kunye nokuguqula isoftware. I-Copyleft luhlobo lwelayisenisi yesoftware ethatha ithuba lothintelo lwelungelo lokushicilela, kodwa ngenjongo yokukhuthaza ukwabelana (ukusebenzisa iilayisensi zelungelo lokushicilela ngokukhululekileyo kunye nokulungisa isoftware).

Ekuqaleni, i-SFC yazama ukuthethathethana ngoxolo, kodwa izenzo ngokuphembelela kunye nolwazi azithethelelanga kwaye imeko yavela kushishino lwesixhobo se-Intanethi ngokungahoywa ngokubanzi kweemfuno ze-GPL. Ukuphuma kule meko kwaye ubeke umzekelo, kwagqitywa ukuba kusetyenziswe amanyathelo asemthethweni angqongqo ukuzisa aboni kubulungisa kwaye aququzelele ukuxoxwa kwetyala elihlekisayo komnye wabona baphuli-mthetho babi.

Isimangalo asiboneleli ngentlawulo yembuyekezo yemali, i-SFC icela kuphela inkundla ukuba iphoqelele inkampani ukuba ihambelane nemimiselo ye-GPL kwiimveliso zayo kwaye yazise abathengi malunga namalungelo anikwe ilayisenisi ye-copyleft. Kwimeko apho ulwaphulo-mthetho lulungiswa, zonke iimfuno zifezekisiwe, kwaye uxanduva lwexesha elizayo lokuthobela i-GPL lunikezelwa, i-SFC ilungele ukuvala ityala ngokukhawuleza.

I-Vizio yaziswa ekuqaleni ngokuphulwa kwe-GPL ngo-Agasti ka-2018. Kangangonyaka, iinzame zenziwa ukusombulula impixano ngeendlela zozakuzo, kodwa ngoJanuwari 2020, inkampani iye yarhoxa ngokupheleleyo kwiingxoxo kwaye yayeka ukuphendula kwiileta ezivela kubameli be-SFC. NgoJulayi ka-2021, umjikelo wenkxaso wemodeli yeTV wagqitywa, i-firmware efunyenwe inesiphene, kodwa abameli be-SFC bafumanisa ukuba iingcebiso ze-SFC azizange zithathelwe ngqalelo kwaye imigaqo ye-GPL nayo yaphulwa kwiimodeli. yezixhobo ezitsha.

Ngokukodwa, iimveliso zeVizio azinikezeli amandla omsebenzisi ukuba acele ikhowudi yomthombo yezinto ze GPL ze Linux kernel-based firmware kunye nemeko yenkqubo eqhelekileyo apho iipakethe ze GPL ezifana ne U-Boot, Bash, gawk, GNU zichongiwe itar, glibc, FFmpeg, Bluez, BusyBox, Coreutils, glib, dnsmasq , DirectFB, libgcrypt , kunye ne-systemd. Ngaphaya koko, izixhobo zolwazi azikhankanyi ukusetyenziswa kwesoftware phantsi kweelayisenisi ze-copyleft kunye namalungelo anikezelwe ngala mvume.

Kwimeko kaVizio, Ukuthotyelwa kwe-GPL kubaluleke kakhulu xa kuqwalaselwa izimangalo ezidlulileyo apho inkampani ityholwa ngokwaphula ubumfihlo kunye nokuthumela ulwazi lomntu malunga nabasebenzisi abasuka kwizixhobo, kubandakanya ulwazi malunga neemuvi kunye nemiboniso yeTV abayibukeleyo.
