GPL 3 Draft 3 Prevents Free Software 'Mockery'

red5 writes "As promised, the third draft of the GPL 3 was released today, strongly influenced and delayed by the patent agreement between Novell and Microsoft.

The third draft also refines terms on termination, compatibility and applicability of the defining license of the Free Software movement. The ultimate effect of the GPL version 3 may well be extremely widespread, affecting countless thousands of software applications and tens of millions of developers and users."
