The new version of the GPL (v3) is on its way, and what better time than now to revisit some of the principles underlying open source software. While brushing up on open source concepts, I found this concise yet intelligent rundown of open source issues with an uncommon look at the downside. It’s published by the American Bar Association, so it’s gotta be good. I’m not sure how old it is (how hard would it have been to put a publication date on it?), but it’s clearly still relevant.
