Lawyer: GPL 3 public draft due early 2006

SAN FRANCISCO--The first draft of the next version of the General Public License should be released for public discussion in early 2006, according to a key player in the effort to modernize the foundation of the free and open-source programming movements.

That release will begin a public debate that should end with GPL version 3 in early 2007, said Eben Moglen, the Columbia law school professor who represents license overseer Free Software Foundation. Moglen spoke in an interview at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo here.
