Hipatia :: Blog :: Which License for Free Documentation?

July 11, 2003

Posted 5 Jul 2003 by MichaelCrawford (Master)

The Debian community has decided that the GNU Free Documentation License is not actually a free license at all, and is starting work to remove GFDL-licensed work from its main distribution. Such will only be available in non-free, which some people never install out of principle and CDROM vendors cannot distribute in whole because the licenses on some packages forbid it. Their objections stem from restrictions on modification of invariant sections and cover texts, and are neatly summarized in Why You Shouldn't Use the GNU FDL.
