Thanks Gene. I'm going to need to read that about 25 times before I
get a full handle on it. But, in a moment of panic here I am wondering
if I am violating GPL by using some ALSA functions in my code?

Please, read the GPL again, all versions. GPLv3 in particular gives the
legal teams at places like the Free Software Foundation or the Electronic
Freedom Foundation, the legal power, if you assign the copyrights to them
(this is required so they have standing in a court of law to bring the suit
in the first place), to go after the thieves and cheats. Generally they
get compliance with the GPL, but there have also been some cases where the
violators have been fined some quite decent sums of money. You won't get
much if anything, but rest assured, the thieves and cheats WILL be brought
to heel, at no cost to you.

There are exceptions to that of course, does anyone here remember how much
those 2 blackbox coders collected?

Cheers, Gene
