Maybe Im not too knowledgable on this, but the linuxsampler FAQ goes
into great lengths to say its open source and friendly.
[*] LinuxSampler is licensed under the GNU GPL license with the
exception that USAGE of the souce code, libraries and applications FOR
COMMERCIAL HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE PRODUCTS IS NOT ALLOWED without prior
written permission by the LinuxSampler authors. If you have questions
on the subject, that are not yet covered by the FAQ, please contact
Forgive me if im wrong, but that sounds a little like GPLv3? :)
