FSF new license gives more freedom of choice to Wikipedia

The FSF has updated its long controversial Free Documentation License. Developed initially for the manuals of GNU system, it was chosen for Wikipedia. This choice led to various problems, with many people regretting it. The new version allows changing the license from GNU FDL to Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0. Today FSF and Richard Stallman demonstrated once again the importance of this organization.’  To say it with Larry Lessig’s words:

Add “good citizen” to the list of praise for this [Richard Stallman] founder of contemporary freedom.

Enormously important news from the Free Software Foundation (Lessig Blog).
