Bangalore to Host the Fourth International Conference on GPLv3

India will host the Fourth International GPLv3 Conference in
Bangalore, this August 23-24, 2006. A part of the world-wide drive to
create awareness about the upcoming version three of the GNU General
Public License (GPLv3), the two-day conference is expected to draw
delegates  from across the communities - legal, bureaucrat and
academia. While the first day will see Richard M Stallman and Eben
Moglen, the original architects of the GPLv3 license, communicating
latest updates on the GPLv3  final draft, the second day holds panel
discussions on localisation, awareness and adoption of GPLv3 and
threat of Digital Restrictions Management (DRM).

The event to be held at the Indian Institute of  Management -
Bangalore is a sequence to the Third International GPLv3 Conference
that took place in Barcelona, Spain. Similar events have already been
held in the USA and Brazil. The international GPLv3 conferences are
part  of a year-long public consultation process to update the GNU
General Public
License (GPL).

The version 3 of the GPL, essentially, takes into account changes in
terms of legal and technical environment, in which software licenses
operate, and the need to increase protection against new threats such
as software patents and Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). The
worldwide awareness drive for GPLv3, is to ensure that, all users of
software distributed under its terms, have the freedom to examine,
share, and
modify that software.
