In some cases it might come to the situation that TYPO3 is used as base 
system. When other system that are not GPL have to be integrated into 
the system it can become hard to do that because the two licenses conflict.

There is a big chance that I'm wrong! ;-) But there must be a reason 
that there are a lot of products that come with a dual-license. ;-)

I was not aware of the the fact (?) that in Germany a developer can't 
give away his copyright. If this is correct how can it be that in all 
files of TYPO3 Kasper is mentioned as copyright holder?
