More GPL Cure Period Commitments

Fourteen more companies, including Amazon, ARM, Intel, MariaDB, Pivotal and VMware — have joined in the Red Hat-led GPL Cooperation Commitment, a cure period pledge for violations of GPL and LGPL version 2 licenses, bringing the total number of pledging companies to 24.  The pledges now represent 39 percent of corporate contributions to the Linux kernel and six of the top 10 corporate contributors.  Red Hat has also invited individual Linux contributors to join.

There is a GitHub page with more information about the GPL Cooperation Commitment and instructions on how to join.
