Thanks to Matthew Parry.

Bowerbird Computing has released version 1.0 of the New Copyleft License (NCL). The NCL is designed to advance free software in areas where offering consultancy services is not a viable way to earn an income from the software (ie, games, genealogy programmes, ... pretty much any software aimed at the home user). It is also worded in such a way as to allow it to be applied to books, and may form a solution to the problems identified by Richard Stallman and O'Reilly and associates.
