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