Get the FACTS, And Your GPL!
You might not be aware of this fact, but someone on the internet owes you a great deal!
PromotingLinux.com has carefully combed through the GPL EULA. We have discovered that it is designed to hide both the facts and your rights.
The terms of the GPL agreement stipulate that any organization or website that uses the Linux or GPL EULA’d code and technologies must provide all visitors that ask with: 1) the source code to the back-end technologies used, 2) the database data, and 3) the raw source-code for the websites.
If you come upon a website that uses either Apache, PHP, or MySQL (or any other Linux-based technology) copy and past the following text and demand what is owed to you!

I have detected that you are using the Linux EULA and/or the GPL.
You must abide by the terms stipulated and “open source” your organization/websites to me.
- You have to provide the source code on request to any Linux-based technologies used, *if* that technology is public facing.
- You have to provide and “open-source” any patches/modifications made to those technologies, regardless if that technology is used only internally or is public facing.
- You have to provide the raw source code and database data for all public facing websites running on those technologies.
I now stipulate that you should provide me with all the above and also submit to my GNU/FOSS audit which I will conduct of your facilities on __/__/__.
P.S. If you don’t comply you will be sorry!
