[20060117] GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 3 Draft 1
Read it and participate in the discussion of the license in a constructive way. This license WILL affect all of us, whether we like it or not. From a very rough look, it has become even longer, going from 13 to 19 clauses. (Just why do I have to think of the European Constitution right now? ;-)

Please let me add that I do think that the GPL -- while it has a few problematic terms -- is, in general, a very nicely written license, as it's very specific about what to do and what not to do. This can serve as a good introduction to the whole licensing topic to people who don't know about laws (like programmers :). Of course the size of the document rather turns people away, unfortunately.
