GPLv3-compatible licenses

The following things should be clarified:

  • Affero GPL 1.0 is not compatible with GPLv3-draft-2. In [1], RMS said: "The idea is to make GPL version three compatible with a modified version of the Affero licence. They will modify the Affero licence and thus cause all these things to be compatible."
  • PHP license 3.01 requires, that derived works don't contain "PHP" in their name. This contradicts with the last paragraph of section 7.b of GPLv3-draft-2, and makes PHP license 3.01 incompatible with GPLv3-draft-2.
  • GPLv2 is not compatible with GPLv3. You can use GPLv2 code in GPLv3 work only if the work is dual-licensed "GPLv2 or any later version", or if you are the copyright holder of the work.

If PHPL3 is not compatible then Apache 1.1 won't either, for the same reason. As for Apache 1.0, it has an advertising clause, so I think it never was compatible with any GPLv3 draft. Beuc 15:14, 1 January 2007 (EST)


Are there any plans to make the GFDL and CC-BY-SA compatible?--bjwebb 08:17, 30 December 2006 (EST)
