Do I have to turn in a copyright assignment? i don't work for a company.
This is my hobby.
Where these started to came from..?
Don't confuse copyright and license. They are two different subjects and
partly different laws applies to them, copyright is covered by copyright
laws, license is basically contract between you and other people and is
covered by contract (or similiar) laws.
If you compile it under Cygwin _and_ link your app against _any_ GPL
library (including cygwin1.dll in Windoze) your application license must
be GPL. You still hold copyright for your original work (and your later
modifications) and thus can do anything with that piece of code eg.
there is some examples (like MySQL) that uses dual licensing, one which
is GPL and one commercial.
