GPL3 Draft 3

...has been released. In cyberspace (like in meatspace), a consequence of freedom is the negation of profit-making through exploitive oppression. Cash (euphemistically referred to as "business") is at stake. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the FUD over GPL3 has been extraordinary.

A reminder: We are not against making money. In fact, there are proven ways to do so ethically with free software - and GPL3 won't deny that. But we will not accept business practices that abuse the rights of computer users to study, share, modify, and run for any purpose their software. This is why GPL3 is soon to become reality.

Read and understand GPL3 draft 3 here. Cut through some FUD here.
