Well, org-mode , org-export-latex, org-mouse,  org-publish, org-card.tex
are licenced under "GPL2 or any later version" :

<from org.el>

so, we can "use" org-mode also with GPL3.  
However thank you, Leo,  for pointing this out.

RMS suggest to switch to "GPL3 or any later", because
GPL3 offers a wider protection for our freedoms.

Please, have a look at the site http://www.gnu.org and 
search for "presentation of GPL3" or FAQ or something like that, 
sorry if I can't provide a link.
