Cyberspace Policy Institute to debate AdTI on the GPL and Free Software

"With the arrival of e-Government, where important democratic institutions are increasingly being placed in cyberspace, it has become crucially important
to examine the software foundations of the emerging critical information infrastructure. One need only consider the implications of secret code running
e-voting machines in future elections, as an example, to realize that software is no longer just a technical or business issue, but rather has become a
larger public policy matter, too. ... To this end, the Cyberspace Policy Institute accepts ADTI's gracious offer for debate, and submits the paper by John Viega and Bob Fleck, "Dispelling
Myths about the GPL and Free Software," to further the dialog."
