FSF Releases GNU License
The Free Software Foundation has released Version 3 of the last of it's free software licenses to be updated — the GNU Affero General Public License or GAGPL — aimed at network software and web applications.
The license, named after Affero project for which it was originally undertaken, was released on November 19th, and scored it's first adopter — web-based comment software stet — on the 21st. The license is intended to close a loophole in the popular GNU General Public License, mandating that users of software on "network servers" be provided with source-code for modifications of GAGPL-licensed software used on those servers.
