Subject: Conflicting license specification

The README and at least the File::VirusScan documentation states that "This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.", but in Makefile.PL and META.yml "gpl" is specified as the license. I believe it should be something like "perl" or so instead. Regards, Slaven

Thanks for pointing that out. The README is wrong; the license is supposed to be GPL. We'll put an updated version up soon. Regards, David.

Hi, File::VirusScan 0.102 now correctly specifies the license as GPL v2 or later. Regards, David.
