LXer: Updated Free Documentation License released

Published at LXer:

With arguments about changes to the GNU General Public License (GPL) still sizzling, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) has released a discussion draft of the new version of the GNU Free Documentation License (FDL). Many of the changes to the FDL mirror those to the GPL, including increased clarity of language and changes in wording to make internationalization clearer. In addition, the draft expands the license to make it suitable for audio and video, defines fair use, and introduces the Simpler Free Documentation License (SFDL), which is presented as a more straightforward alternative to the FDL. However, it seems questionable whether these changes will be enough to silence previous criticisms.
