GPOL: A new open license for the world.

Linux Today reader Francisco Burzi writes:

“We, at NCC, have created
the GPOL Project. GPOL
means General Public Open License
(not afiliated with the GNU
Project, and name subject to change) and the goal is to make a
generic license good for both software authors and users.”

“The new license now is a prototype and not usable, but with the
community contribution we can make a good license, good for
everyone combining the best of GNU and Open Source.”

“We need some help. The wish list includes the approval of the
developers community, the revision of each point of GPOL, a good
lawyer who can donate some time and knowledge, English (and others)
translations, a FAQ and maybe a more cool name for the entire
project.”

“I hope that you can help us in building a better world!”
