GNU GPLv3 Launch
On Friday, June 29, at 12 noon (EDT), the Free Software Foundation will
officially release the GNU GPL version 3. Please, join us in celebration
as we bring to a close eighteen months of public outreach and comment
in revision of the world's most popular free software license.
Beyond the creation of an improved license, the process of drafting
version 3 has helped highlight vital issues for the community of free
software users. This is a moment to thank both the thousands who participated
by commenting on the license and those who represented stakeholders
through the GPLv3 committee process.
Now, with the release of GPLv3, we will see new defenses extended to free
software. These defenses will continue the long history of fighting all
efforts to make free software proprietary.
Please, join us as we stream live footage of Richard Stallman announcing
GPLv3 from Noon (EDT) at www.fsf.org.
If you are in the Boston area you can also join us at the FSF offices
from 11:30am. Please let us know at <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you would like to
