I'm basically making a very very similar application(as if I completely replaced it) only with Microsoft Visual Basic as the program language.
So far I understand that I can keep a private copy of this on a private computer, correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm hoping to call it Yumi VB (i know, not original, but was hoping that the original author would host it or I'll host it either on sourceforge or somehow with a private server or hosting site).
But I am not sure if I would be allowed to distribute it and I won't till I know that the license says I can and how.
If possible place some links to help out others and me to understand licensing and how they can use it or others if they are trying to make alternate versions of other programs if possible.
Also, I wondered if I could make cash off it(either by donations(i assume i can do this anytime) or by selling the program(not sure if that would work since YUMI exists already)) or change licensing as well. (I'm not familiar with any of this.)
Edited: Also, The original Program is under the GNU GPL v2 license, if that helps.
