I wrote a small multiplatform app and I am considering publishing the osx version in apple store. I've licensed the app under a GPLv3 license.
I sort of like the GPLv3 license but I also like the easiness of apple store. I'm worried about the GPL's "freedom to distribute a copy" requirement - which seems to be incompatible with apple store policies (I think there is a line that states that downloads are for personal use only).
Is this a valid concern? Can I meet the requirements of the GPL by distributing the osx binary at the same place as the source, since I can't do it in the apple store? Or is this forbidden by the apple store policy (it seems to require that apple store software be downloadable only from apple store)?
By apple store I mean mac app store (gpl is not compatible with iPhone's app store).
I add a good clarification to the accepted answer from the comments by Abhi Beckert:
So, if you wrote all the code yourself then you do whatever you want including releasing it on the Mac/iPhone App Stores. If you didn't write all the code, then you need permission from anyone who ever wrote even one line. All of the GPL apps which have been pulled, were pulled because one (or more) of the developers demanded that it be taken down. Once that happens, Apple must pull it, or they'd face criminal charges
And in practice: remove all mercurial changesets that are not yours and make the program work after that (or ask for approval from the person who wrote the changeset).
