Free Software Foundation porta il copyleft a nuovi traguardi: la piu'
importante opera collaborativa in rete sara' presto diffusa  sotto
licenza CC. La Free Culture ora e' molto piu' forte. Lessig: grazie a
Stallman siamo ad una svolta epocale

Questi i passaggi secondo me pił rilevanti della FAQ di FDL 1.3

Q. Exactly what material can be licensed under CC-BY-SA 3.0?
      A. In order to license an FDL-covered work under CC-BY-SA
      3.0, a few conditions must be met:

      + The work must be available under the terms of FDL 1.3,
	which provides you with this permission. If the work was
	released under the terms of "the GNU Free Documentation
	License, version 1.2 or (at your option) any later
	version," then it meets this criteria.
      + The work must not have any "Cover Texts" or "Invariant
	Sections." These are optional features in all versions of
	the FDL.
      + If the work was originally published somewhere other than
	a public wiki, it must have been added to a wiki (or some
	other kind of web site where the general public could
	review and edit the materials) before November 1, 2008.

      All FDL-covered material added to Wikipedia before November
      1, 2008 satisfies these conditions.

Q. What is the purpose of the two different dates in section 11?
      Why did you choose those specific dates?
      A. Section 11 imposes two deadlines on licensees. First, if
      a work was originally published somewhere other than a
      public wiki, you can only use it under CC-BY-SA 3.0 if it
      was added to a wiki before November 1, 2008. We do not want
      to grant people this permission for any and all works
      released under the FDL. We also do not want people gaming
      the system by adding FDLed materials to a wiki, and then
      using them under CC-BY-SA afterwards. Choosing a deadline
      that has already passed unambiguously prevents this.

      Second, this permission is no longer available after August
      1, 2009. We don't want this to become a general permission
      to switch between licenses: the community will be much
      better off if each wiki makes its own decision about which
      license it would rather use, and sticks with that. This
      deadline ensures that outcome, while still offering all
      wiki maintainers ample time to make their decision.
