The WordPress Flowplayer plugin is licensed using creative commons: by attribution, no commercial and share alike license.
The plugin integrates into WordPress which is GPLv2 licensed, should the Flowplayer plugin not also be GPL licensed as it is dependant on WordPress?
The Flowplayer version packaged in this download is not GPL licensed it is the commercial licensed version of Flowplayer.
The other version of Flowplayer that is available from the Flowplayer website is GPLv3 licensed with extra attribution conditions added to it that make it Badgeware like SugarCRM, to remove the attributions you need to buy the commercial version, which is not really in the true spirit of GPL Open Source software.
The author of the plugin is an affiliate of Flowplayer and is employed by Flowplayer (Known as Buzz on the Flowplayer Forum and company page).
Can the site admins check the current download package of this plugin 188.8.131.52 to check if its a suitable plugin to remain hosted on wordpress.org
