Is the GFDL a good free content license?
Background and Context of Debate:
The GNU Free Documentation License (GNU FDL or simply GFDL) is a copyleft license for free documentation, designed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) for the GNU project. It is the counterpart to the GNU General Public License that gives readers the same rights to copy, redistribute and modify a work and requires all copies and derivatives to be available under the same license. Copies may also be sold commercially, but, if produced in larger quantities (greater than 100), the original document or source code must be made available to the work's recipient.
This debate asks whether the GFDL is a good free content license. The GFDL is used by the largest free content site, Wikipedia.
Note: In this debate Free Content, refers to free content as defined by the free content definition.
