+<dd><p>This is a free software license.  By itself, it has a copyleft
+comparable to the GPL's.  However, it allows recipients to distribute
+the work under the terms of other selected licenses, and some of
+those&mdash;the <a href="#MPL">Mozilla Public License</a> and the <a
+href="#CommonPublicLicense10">Common Public License</a> in
+particular&mdash;only provide a weaker copyleft.   Thus, developers
+can't rely on this license to provide a strong copyleft.</p>
+<p>The EUPL is compatible with GPLv2, because that is listed as one of
+the alternative licenses that recipients may use.  However, it is
+incompatible with GPLv3, because recipients are not given permission to
+use GPLv3's terms, and the EUPL's copyleft conflicts with GPLv3's.
+Because of this incompatibility, we urge you not to use the EUPL for any
+software you write.</p></dd>
