#1211 closed Bug report

Installer violates GPL

Description

The installer flat out says you *MUST* accept GPL to install FileZilla 2.2.29. However, The GPL V2 states:

Section 0:

"Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted..."

And similarly, Section 5:

"You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it."

Could you look into rewording the license screen on the installer?
