GPLv3: Simplicity and Length

coriordan writes "Everyone wishes that free software licences were shorter. The good
news from
the GPLv3 process
is that the new GPL+LGPL, combined, will be shorter. However, the
GPLv3 itself will be longer - but longer doesn't have to mean more
complex. Simplicity is beneficial because, as well as lawyers, the
GPL has to be read by software developers and judges."
