GPL v3

The GNU General Public Licence version 3 has been released. This is a licence agreement that software owners can use as the agreement between themselves and their users. Creative Commons also offers a range of licences for owners to use - they have a great range of plain English licences if the GPL is not suitable.

Welcome to GPLv3 — GPLv3
2007 June 29: GPLv3 and LGPLv3 have been released!

The final text of GPLv3 is accompanied with a rationale document explaining the few changes since the “Last Call” draft. The final text of LGPLv3 is available as well.
