Hi all,

I used to post a question about GPL licence already, but i don't get any reply. Let me make my question more precisely.

I would like to add a some file that contain following licence to Wireshark:

I'm wondering if this kind of license has a conflict with Wireshark licence, and if it does, which part of this licence seem to be trouble?

Any idea would be appreciate.

Thanks,

Chanthy
