1. Heading towards the GPLv3

The world wide network of Free Software Foundations is currently
preparing the next step in the evolution of the GNU General Public
License, the most used license in the Free Software world. While there
is no doubt that the current version (GPLv2) holds in court and is
applicable all over the world, the GPLv3 will address aspects that
were not as pressing or did not exist at the time the GPLv2 was
written, like programs that are used over the internet. Other issues
likely to be of interest are software patents, compatibility with
other copyleft licenses, DRM and TCP.

The Free Software Foundation Europe is determined to put as much time
and energy into this project as it needs to make the GPLv3 as powerful
and successful as the GPLv2 is.

The FSFE has set up a mailing list for public discussion of GPLv3, to
which you are invited to subscribe at
