a little question...

hi everybody!
thanks 4 reading this msg or post.
i have a little question about this program of DAW.
well, i know this program is under covering of GPL, but i need to know if infringe some patents of differents owners or companies.
well…i post this, because i like free software without infringe the law or patents.


@User20: we do not attempt to discover if we infringe any patents. I have been advised that it would be legally unwise to do such research. However, there is no reason to believe that we do so - almost every element of Ardour’s functionality is implemented by multiple different programs, and many of them originate in non-commercial software that precedes proprietary DAWs.
