| AGPLv3 because the company views it as a major open source license of the 
| future.

| License (AGPL v3.0), a license we’ve been waiting for a long time that will 
| allow us to open source more code such as the jCard (our Card Management 
| System) and jPTS (an ISO-8583/2003 based jPOS Transaction Switch) projects.

| The Free Software Foundation (FSF) today published the GNU Affero General 
| Public License version 3 (GNU AGPLv3). This is a new license; it is based on 
| version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GNU GPLv3), but has an 
| additional term to allow users who interact with the licensed software over a 
| network to receive the source for that program. By publishing this license, 
| the FSF aims to foster user and development communities around 
| network-oriented free software.

Why does Microsoft seem scared of GPLv3?

| Microsoft is extremely keen to avoid "legal debate" over whether its recent 
| partnerships with Linux firms such as Novell, Xandros, and Linspire, mean 
| Redmond must assume any of the new licenses' legal obligations.

| distribution, according to the Free Software Foundation.
