According to conclusions from FSF's recent researches, "RF" patents
cannot be used in GPL projects due to a conflict with the GPL'7th
section.
We ask ourselves even if any of this software can be considered as
"free".
Why not using an other derived form of GPL to qualify standards and
limit patents ?
