The adutux driver is based on works that have been released under the GPL. This includes code copyrighted by Greg Kroah-Hartman, Oliver Neukum and others. The portions contributed by myself are copyright 2003-2004 by John Homppi.

Licensing Notes

Calling the exposed API of the adutux.ko driver does NOT cause your application program to become a "derived work". You retain all rights and privileges to your application code. (Note: this clause mimics the condition applied by Linus Torvalds to the entire Linux kernel.)

However, any changes you make to the adutux source code MUST be shared as per the covenants of the GPL. The GPL is the only authorisation that grants you the privilege to use the adutux driver. If you do not wish to abide by the GPL then do not use the adutux driver.
