<h1>GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers</h1>
 

	
 
<p>The GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers is comprised of copyright
 
holders in the kernel, Linux, who have contributed to Linux under its
 
license, <a href="http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html">the
 
GPLv2</a>. These copyright holders have formally asked Conservancy to engage
 
in compliance efforts for their copyrights in the Linux kernel.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Historically, Conservancy was well-known for its ongoing license
 
compliance efforts on behalf of its BusyBox member project.  In May
 
2012, <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/news/2012/may/29/compliance/">Conservancy
 
announced a coordinated compliance effort</a> on behalf of its BusyBox and
 
Samba projects, and also launched this unique project, called the <cite>GPL
 
Compliance Project for Linux Developers</cite>, which handles compliance and
 
enforcement activities on behalf of more than a dozen Linux copyright
 
holders.</p>
 
 
 
<p>Conservancy's GPL Compliance Project is run in a collaborative manner with
 
the project developers.  All copyright holders involved have the opportunity
 
to give input and guidance on Conservancy's strategy in dealing with
 
compliance issues.  Thus, all Conservancy's compliance matter have full
 
support of relevant copyright holders.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Conservancy is dedicated to encouraging all users of software to comply
 
  with Free Software licenses. Toward this goal, in its compliance efforts,
 
  Conservancy helps distributors of Free Software in a friendly spirit of
 
  cooperation and participation.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Those who are interested in how Conservancy handles GPL enforcement and
 
  compliance work should read in
 
  detail <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2012/feb/01/gpl-enforcement/">our
 
  blog post outlining the process.</p>
 

	
 
<p>If you are aware of a license violation or compliance issue regarding
 
  Linux, or
 
  any <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/members/current/">Conservancy member
 
  project</a> (and in particular BusyBox, Evergreen, Inkscape, Mercurial,
 
  Samba, Sugar Labs, or Wine),
 
  please <a href="mailto:compliance@sfconservancy.org">contact us by email at
 
  &lt;compliance@sfconservancy.org&gt;</a></p>

  Compliance Project for Linux Developers.  Use the PayPal link below,
 
  or <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/donate/">any of our other donation
