comment Does distributing GPLd assets with a non-GPL application violate the license?
@DmitryAlexandrov Ah I see I missed the bit about distribution as a whole would be GPL licensed, you are correct. (You are also correct that this isn't an "aggregate" as defined in the GPL)

I think you misunderstand "GPL-compatible", a license is GPL compatible if it can be combined with GPL code and the aggregate distributed under the GPL. You may not combine GPL code code with a compatible license and distribute the combination under the non-GPL license. See: gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#WhatDoesCompatMean

comment Commercial use for embedded system
Since you are selling this make sure you charge enough to cover the cost of consulting a lawyer that is familiar with Open Source licensing and then consult that lawyer.

comment License for my Software
Are you a regular "W-2" employee, a 1099 contractor, or a contract employee via a third party. This will impact the answer. Are you an exempt or non-exempt employee?

comment Does a GPL Bison grammar infect my application?
@MichaelT Yes but if he means that the grammar itself is covered by the GPL (e.g. it was taken from a GPL program) then the GPL of the grammar will probably make his program a derived work. Clarification of the actual question is needed.

comment Does a GPL Bison grammar infect my application?
Please clarify. Do you mean the grammar (i.e. the input to Bison) is GPL or are you concerned about using Bison because it it GPL?

You are correct, that is why I would advocate using FreeBSD or other BSD and/or Apache licensed software on appliances.
