Abstract: The GNU General Public License is the license most used for free software and is a fundamental license for the movement of this software. To bring the license up to date with technological and legal evolution, after it was first published in 1989, the Free Software Foundation profoundly revised the terminology, publishing its version 3 in June 2007. This article discusses the causes and objectives for this revision and some of the main new elements in the GPLv3. The revision results in a licence which is more in agreement with the framework of international copyright, and more flexible and compatible with other free software licenses. Important agreements have been added to face the new threats to free software, such as software patents and the legal protection of systems of digital rights management (DRM).
