The Hamstersoft & calibre GPL issues have been resolved

This is a repeat of a post that I know I already wrote. Unfortunately, it seems to have vanished.

A couple weeks ago I posted about the Hamstersoft Ebook Converter. While the app may have been extremely popular, there was also a problem with it. The Hamstersoft Ebook Converter was based on code copied from calibre, only the Hamstersoft developers neglected to follow all the license requirements.

The issue has been resolved,  so it doesn't really matter. But Hamstersoft  were supposed  have released a complete set of source code for their app; this was required under GPL. Hamstersoft did finally release the source code about a week ago.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
