Many thanks to Antony for providing this master piece of software to the community.
But I disagree with the one who as setup the google code repository using a GPLV2 license which is not an open licence and lock the "openness" of usage as soon as you use this license. In GPL there is only "freedom" of code and not freedom of usage. GPL, in my humble opinion totally contradict the intent of Antony who wrote:

Yes, shoorick is right! You can do whatever you want with the WinAsm Studio source, preferably use it to improve the IDE. Please share any improvements you might come up with!

So in my opinion an MIT or 2 clause BSD type of license would be more appropriate.
So if the license is not changed on the google repository
I am thinking of setting up another repository based on released code using one of these open source licenses (MIT or 2 clauses BSD ) on GITHUB for example in order to keep the freedom of usage going....
Maybe the author of the software should explicitely state his point of vue.
SQLITE for example is explicitely released as public domain, not even MIT or BSD.
MIT or BSD gives total freedom but ask for acknowledement of authorship, which I think is legitimate.
Basically it all sum up to whether or not you bother somebody else potentially making money with your code.
The GPL guys don't want this to happen, the BSD and MIT guys don't care.
So Antony, as the author you should really decide on this to clarify the matter,
if you deem it necessary but if you think the above quote is explicit enough.
In this case for sure GPL is not the correct license if I understand your intent correctly.

I've asked Antony which licence he would prefer. And he wanted to use GPLV2. If he would like to change the licence, he's able to do that. Because i'm not the owner of the project. I've only created the google-code repo and then send the account details to Antony and Shoorick.

Best regards,

Where is a 'Like' button?

I'm pretty sure that GPL v2 is OK.
