The GNU General Public License v3.0

Version 3, 29 June 2007 Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. < Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works. The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received. Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it. 0. 1. 2.

Guide rapide de la GPLv3 - Projet GNU by Brett Smith [This article is also available in PDF and reStructuredText formats.] After a year and a half of public consultation, thousands of comments, and four drafts, version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) was finally published on June 29, 2007. While there's been a lot of discussion about the license since the first draft appeared, not many people have talked about the benefits that it provides developers. We've published this guide to fill that gap. We'll start with a brief refresher on free software, copyleft, and the goals of the GPL. The Foundations of the GPL Nobody should be restricted by the software they use. the freedom to use the software for any purpose,the freedom to change the software to suit your needs,the freedom to share the software with your friends and neighbors, andthe freedom to share the changes you make. When a program offers users all of these freedoms, we call it free software. Protecting Your Right to Tinker Clarifying License Compatibility

Ferdy on Films FAQ Le réseau Internet est aujourd'hui le vecteur d'avancées considérables en matière d'information et de communication, donnant l'impression d'un espace infini sur lequel tout est possible. Il constitue une nouvelle manière de penser et d'agir, puisque de très nombreuses démarches quotidiennes peuvent désormais être effectuées en ligne, depuis son domicile. Néanmoins, en raison de son caractère infini, Internet peut rapidement faire l'objet de menaces diverses. Pourquoi vous ne devriez pas utiliser la LGPL pour votre prochaine bibliothèque - Projet GNU The GNU Project has two principal licenses to use for libraries. One is the GNU Lesser GPL; the other is the ordinary GNU GPL. The choice of license makes a big difference: using the Lesser GPL permits use of the library in proprietary programs; using the ordinary GPL for a library makes it available only for free programs. Which license is best for a given library is a matter of strategy, and it depends on the details of the situation. Proprietary software developers have the advantage of money; free software developers need to make advantages for each other. Using the ordinary GPL is not advantageous for every library. This is why we used the Lesser GPL for the GNU C library. However, when a library provides a significant unique capability, like GNU Readline, that's a horse of a different color. Proprietary software developers, seeking to deny the free competition an important advantage, will try to convince authors not to contribute libraries to the GPL-covered collection.

Coffee Making: Introduction Next Previous Contents 1. Introduction For a long time humanity has been wondering how could a computer make coffee... People need coffee to wake up, and stay awake for a long time in front of the computer. The main trick is interfacing a coffee machine to the computer, so that it can be controlled by software. At first, it demonstrates an ON/OFF switch implemented as an electronic circuit which controls the coffee-machine's power supply. This HOWTO was initially written as part of a debate in the mailing list linux-greek-users, on whether linux can make coffee or not.
