you seem to be unaware that the gpl (any version) represents only a
small subset of licenses available. In fact, as of now, the most
popular license appears to be the Mozilla Public License. Further, i
just went through the draft of v3 - it is a nightmare. If adopted by
anyone, it is going to cause endless confusion. V2, on the other hand
was a model of simplicity compared to this. Compare the gpl to
creative commons licences and you will understand the difference. Or
compare it to the MPL.
