    5353 ''Using the GNU GPL will require that all the [http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/pragmatic.html released improved versions] be free software. This means you can avoid the risk of having to compete with a proprietary modified version of your own work.''

    55 We don't want people to take PJSIP, mess it up (erm, improve it), and keep the improvements as proprietary code. On the contrary, we want everybody to enjoy PJSIP and all its improvements, and the only way to make sure of this is by releasing PJSIP as GPL. Sure this still leaves some debate over why not use, say LGPL, but I guess this page is probably too short to cover that, but basically we agree with what FSF says [http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/why-not-lgpl.html here].

Our stand on LGPL is explained much better [http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/why-not-lgpl.html here].
