    <h4 class="f4 mt3 mb2 i navy">copyleft compliance</h4>
    <p>When companies utilize copylefted software, they thereby agree to the terms associated with its use. By utilizing copylefted software when designing products, companies agreed to these terms, and so have both contractual and copyright obligations to take certain actions to ensure others have the same rights they did with regard to the software. When rights are respected, the sharing of software under copyleft licensing is a mutually beneficial approach, but many companies are not holding up their side of the bargain. A company is in compliance when it ensures that all of its customers have the same rights, permission, and ability that it has to improve that software and install their improvements onto a device. The best way a company can demonstrate its intent to be in full compliance is by creating a vibrant third-party marketplace for improved software.</p>
