This panel discusses the GNU Affero General Public License (AGPLv3), a copyleft license designed to ensure that users of network-deployed applications receive source code for the application.
AGPLv3 sought to handle to GPLv2's '€œApplication Service Provider loophole'€.  AGPLv3 has seen little adoption by individual developers of community projects, although notable exceptions exist.  Awareness of AGPLv3 has increased with the growing focus on '€œCloud Computing'€.

This panel seeks to discuss and explain all issues surrounding AGPLv3 and contemplate the future of AGPLv3 as a viable copyleft license.
