comment Can someone relicense my code, then sue me for distributing it?
@Ixrec boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/legal as I said, plenty. And that's a good thing. I can't stand the stupid mania of closing them.

What would stop them from suing you completely at random, even if they weren't using your code?

@Ixrec this is totally wrong. Legal questions are allowed in many many SE sites.

comment Can I use GPL libraries temporarily for prototyping and make the future code closed source?
tl;dr AFAIK as long as it's not distributed to the public, you can basically do whatever you want, legally (and ethically). Only pay attention not to distribute older versions when you have the new one (i.e. if you ever want to open the repository, you would have to create a new one starting from the version without GPL software).

Ask him if the caps-lock was already broken, or if this only happens when your application is running.

comment How can I ask my boss (in a polite way) to comment his code?
Try to understand the code as far as you can, and only ask him when you really have no clue about something specific. This is a luxury you won't have if the uncommented code has not been produced in-house.

comment Rewriting GPL code to change license
"have someone which hasn't seen the GPLed code write the library" this is going way too far. I'm not a lawyer, but I'm pretty sure he can just do it himself, as long as he doens't actively use the other library as a reference.

comment Why are developer commit statistics harmful?
Normally I wouldn't upvote a basically link-only+no-excerpt answer, but in this specific case I find it fine, since "the answer" would just be the question itself anyway.

comment How can I hide my signature in a program?
This is pointless: at most it might prove you did it by date X. If this was valid, it would mean that if you didn't do it, someone else could get your code, change the name, upload it, and then "prove" they are the original author. Makes no sense.

comment Forking GPL project: Do I have full rights on the new fork or still dependencies with the original owner(s)
@random_user obviously you can't do it, it's the whole point of the GPL.

comment Forking GPL project: Do I have full rights on the new fork or still dependencies with the original owner(s)
@BartvanIngenSchenau sure, but sometimes workarounds can be built, such as a program which downloads both the original and the patch, and applies the patch. Obviously not practical and annoying to use, but in rare occasions it could make sense.

I appreciate poiting out that of course you are bound to the license, otherwise there would be no point in having a license in the first place. This is a very bad question because of that.

Keep in mind that AFAIK (but IANAL) your code is yours no matter what, i.e. you could release a patch under any license you like, regardless of the license of the target project.
