LXer: Last of the GPL Licenses Goes to Version 3

Published at LXer:

The Free Software Foundation published the GNU Affero General Public License Version 3 on Nov. 19. This new license, based on the GPLv3, enables those who use AGPLv3 software over a network to receive the source code for that software. The AGPL was created to deal with the so-called ASP (application service provider) loophole in the GPLv2. With the approval of the GPLv3, the AGPL was also incorporated, but that version was oriented toward papering over the ASP loophole. This new version makes it explicit that developers can use GPLv3 and AGPLv3 code in common projects. By publishing this license, the FSF aims to foster user and development communities around network-oriented free software.
