Vlc Media Player End User License Agreement

At this point, you may think that all this work is an excellent argument for a contribution agreement that concedes or awards each contributor`s contribution to a central organization. France, where VideoLAN is organized, nevertheless recognizes moral rights. Moral rights include the right to imputation, integrity, disclosure and withdrawal, and are based on the argument that there is a personal and inalienable connection between authors and their work. As such, moral rights cannot be transferred or removed.5 Legal considerations aside, a community may decide not to use a contributor`s agreement to maintain the inevitable democratic process necessary for a task such as modifying the project license. VLC can be installed or run directly from a USB flash drive or other external drive. VLC can be extended by scripting; it uses the script language Lua. [66] [67] VLC can play videos in AVCHD format, a highly compressed format used in today`s HD camcorders. VLC can generate a number of music viewing ads. The program is able to convert media files into different supported formats. [68] Neither French law nor European conventions recognize software as patentable (see French section below). Therefore, software patent licenses do not apply to VideoLAN software. The Microsoft Installer (MSI) file that can be downloaded from the www.cinemaonweb.com/ww1/index.php?ab=cow-sw site appears to contain several VLC and Xvid binary files covered by the GPL. The end-user license agreement (EULA) accepted by the user at the time of installation states that yes, you can distribute an original or modified version of VideoLAN software as long as you comply with the license conditions.

You may remember that VLC was the theme of a small Snafu with the Apple App Store and a conflict of conditions between gpL v2 and iTunes terms of use not so long ago.6 Probably as a result, the VLC media player was pulled from the Apple App Store and is still not available. The question now is whether THE new VLC license under LGPL v2.1 will change anything in this regard. LGPL licenses are considered a „smaller” version of LPG licenses due to more lenient conditions associated with the requirement to apply the license to derivative works for which an application is linked to the covered library.
