the other thing is that the GPL only comes into play when you actually
distribute something.
If you only use it in house, and never distribute, there is no requirement
to release source at all. This has led to numerous discussions especially in
the context of web applications, which are NOT actually distributed. (IMO)

I am not a licensing expert but I know we have some people on the project
who are pretty well up on this sort of thing. Guys, any comments ?

I believe I have a firm grasp of the GPL license as it pertains to software
itself, however in this case, if we were to use oPortal, could custom
portlets that we create have to be released under GPL? Would a site that
uses oPortal come under GPL?
