Momentum Behind ODF Continues To Grow Internationally

,----[ Quoet ]
| "We congratulate the Netherlands, South Africa,and Korea for recognizing ODF, 
| each in its own way, and look forward to the movement's continued momentum in 
| the new year. ODF enables diverse government agencies to work better with one 
| another at lower cost and gives them access to their own information, so it 
| is no wonder that so many governments are taking this action."

| 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.
