Leaf Forced to Release Game Source Code

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Aruruu to Asobo!!, Tears to Tiara, Kusari and ToHeart2 XRATED Source Code Available to the Public

Leaf has been forced to release the source code for four of its games: Aruruu to Asobo!!, Tears to Tiara, Kusari, and the famous ToHeart2 XRATED. This was because Leaf had used the XVid video codec inside their games. XVid is licensed under the GNU Public Library (GPL). When software using GPL licensed code is released to the public, the GPL requires that the source code be made available to the programs users. For a ¥600 shipping and handling fee, Leaf will ship a copy of the code to anyone who requests it.
