FWIW: It's trivially true on Android, at least in the world they posit.

The FSF does not consider GPLv2 to be Apache 2.0 compatible, telegram-FOSS is GPLv2, and Android/AOSP is Apache v2.

Additionally, their own codebase contains a bunch of Apache v2 licensed stuff, like exoplayer2, recyclerview, libtgvoip, fastdateparser, ABSL, etc.

They do not appear to be even giving attribution as required (or at least i can't find it)

They are in no worse a position than they were yesterday:

>ag -Ri apache

will produce tons of matches like this one:

TMessagesProj/jni/libtgvoip/webrtc_dsp/absl/strings/internal/m emutil.cc
