Thoughts on AGPL3

Post by Jastiv »

On June 11th, the FSF released the first draft of the AGPL3. Since this forum has a lot of free-software gamers, I was wondering if you have any take on the license and what may need to be improved.
In light of the fact that game companies could take the code from the game under the plain old GPL3 and set up servers, but not release the source code to the server side code, I believe the AGPL3 to be vital in growing the free-software MMORPG community.
The AGPL3 looks just like the GPL3, with the exception of section 13.
