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).
