I am the new upstream maintainer of the cd ripper Grip
The code licence is stated as follows:

Some files are licenced under the Lesser GPL, with the same type of terms saying that one can use a later version.

My question is: Does this mean that I can change it to say it's released under GPL version 3 and later?
