- If I say "BSD" I mean the 3-Clause BSD license
- If I say "GPL" I mean the GPLv3 license
- I am not the author of the GPL project
- I am the author of the BSD project
I want to use a 3rd party software (GPL) in (or better 'with') my open source project (BSD).
- I won't change any of the GPL project code (using it AS IS).
- I want to use it as kind of a library (I know about LGPL but it's not available).
- I will use the GPL software as bulk, not only parts of the code.
- I will indicate the use of the GPL project with the license, homepage and where and why it is used in my BSD project (in README file).
- I will not take the credits for the functionality of the GPL project.
- I will take the credits for my project and the "Adapter" connecting my BSD project to the GPL project.
- I don't want to re-license the GPL project as BSD
- I won't charge any fees or something like that.
To gain insight, you can find the BSD project at
GitHub: MOC-Framework (see /Extension/FlowPlayer and /Module/Office/Video)
and the GPL project here:
Flowplayer (free flash-version)
Is this possible?
I found some discussions, stating "it is possible", others say "no". Most of the "no" were for commercial projects. Most of the "yes" are referring to: "include BSD in GPLv3", but that's not what I mean. I want GPLv3 along with BSD.
I simply can't figure it out.
