As of this writing, the GNU General Public License ("GPL") is the most pervasive license of Open Source software. Of all the software to which it has been applied, none is better known than the Linux® kernel. In fact, the GPL has been applied to a majority of those software modules that are included in the best known of the Linux® distributions, such as Red Hat® Linux®. Its wide appeal among the Open Source community stems from the fact that it falls into that category of Open Source licenses which obligate parties who wish to redistribute such software, either in original or modified (derivative) form, to do so under the terms of the license agreement under which such software was received (all of which we refer to as Protective licenses). That is, having been granted the right to use, modify and redistribute the software under the GPL, the GPL requires you to extend those same privileges under the same terms to others who receive the software from you. This is the common thread that governs Protective licenses, and for that reason, we will focus on the GPL as the standard for Protective licenses.
