Would you be able please to advise how this incompatibility problem can be = avoided or circumvented so that Saxon can be used in the larger work licens= ed under GPLv3.0? I believe this situation is nothing new to the Saxon comm= unity and probably one have an idea how to settle this issue or at least re= duce the risk of legal persecution. Thank you very much for your time, any help will be highly appreciated.

H= ello,

Our company = is currently developing an open source software product named RadixWare whi= ch is planned to be released under GNU General Public License (GPL) v3.0 du= e to a number of components licensed under GPL. The program comprises diffe= rent open source components and unmodified Saxon HE is deemed to be one of = them.

However, the= FSF claims that the MPL and GPL are incompatible and therefore use of Saxo= n licensed under MPL in the GPL licensed larger work will be illegal from F= SF’s point of view. On the contrary, MPL permits further distribution= of unmodified Saxon under GPL license.

Would you be able please to advise how this incompat= ibility problem can be avoided or circumvented so that Saxon can be used in= the larger work licensed under GPLv3.0? I believe this situation is nothin= g new to the Saxon community and probably one have an idea how to settle th= is issue or at least reduce the risk of legal persecution.

Thank you very much for your time,= any help will be highly appreciated.

 

Sincerely yours,
