Ciaran O'Riordan, der arbejder for Free Software Foundation Europe og
bor i Bruxelles til daglig, er som navnet antyder fra Irland. Ciaran
kommer til København og forklarer os, hvordan hele processen omkring
ændringerne i GPL (licensen) er forløbet indtil nu og om den forventede
tidsplan.

Foredraget om GPLv3 processen er på engelsk, men der kan også stilles
spørgsmål på dansk.

Abstract:
We are now half way through the year-long public consultation for
updating the GNU General Public License. It is fifteen years since
version two was published. This talk will present the main proposed
changes - from lessening the harm of software patents, to preventing DRM
being used against users.

This talk will also explain the public consultation process, what will
happen when an official GPLv3 is published, and what each of us can do
to make this process as effective as possible.


Full description: Updating the GNU General Public License is a new type of project for the Free Software community. There are no big changes proposed for version three. The goal will be the same - to ensure that the recipient of GPL'd software is free to use it, to study it's source code, to adapt it to their needs, and to redistribute it with or without modifications.

The reasons for the updates are that ensuring those things in 2006 is
not the same as ensuring them in 1991 when version two was published.
The legal and technical environment has changed, and new ways of tying
users' hands have been devised.

This presentation will cover the way which GPLv3 proposes to protect
users from Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), without prohibiting
DRM or other uses of encryption. It will cover the new provisions to
lessen the incentives for initiating software patent litigation, and the
safeguards that should protect Free Software users in some cases.
Licence compatibility and internationalisation will also be covered.

Finally, information will be given on how everyone can participate in
the public consultation process, and what we can all do to raise
awareness of this process and make it as effective as possible.

For nylig udkom det andet udkast til GPLv3 med de gode forslag, som
indkom i forbindelse med den hidtidige høring.

Der var kommet omkring 1000 forslag, der alle var af brugbar kvalitet.
Man har
mulighed for at følge forslagene, så man undgår at stille et forslag, der
allerede har været stillet til et bestemt punkt i licensteksten.

Der har været afholdt konferencer mange steder på kloden for at opmuntre
alle, der måtte være interesserede i at deltage aktivt i processen.
Målet har også været, at de, der har deltaget i konferencerne spreder og
deler deres viden med andre i deres nærmiljø.

Høringsperioden er sat til omkring 1 års tid. Det står klart, at jo
tidligere man har bidraget med sine erfaringer eller sine ønsker desto
større mulighed har man for at få medindflydelse på det endelige
resultat, GPLv3.

Høringsprocessen er en historisk begivenhed, der direkte inviterer og
opmuntrer til deltagelse i den vigtige demokratiske og globale proces.

De tekniske værktøjer, der er blevet udviklet i forbindelse med
høringsprocessen omkring GPLv3 kan forhåbentlig danne skole for andre
internationale beslutningsprocesser.

Det har været vigtigt at fastsætte en tidsplan, der er fast, uden at være
cementeret. Foreløbig forløber processen efter planerne og fuldt ud
transparent, så alle kan følge med. Det er afgørende for tilliden.

Vel mødt efter ferien til et spændende efterår i DKUUG.

Med venlig hilsen

DKUUG
