Moglen Moves On to Life After GPLv3
No more everyday work on GPLv3 for Eben Moglen; the well-known attorney is turning his attention back to teaching at Columbia and work at the Software Freedom Law Center. (Linux-Watch)While not as familiar a name in open-source circles as Linus Torvalds or Richard M. Stallman, for those in the know, Eben Moglen ranks near them in his importance to the free software movement. Now, the Columbia University professor of law, general counsel for the FSF (Free Software Foundation) and one of the main authors of the GPLv3 is leaving the FSF and the GPLv3 behind. In a blog entry entitled "And Now ... Life After GPLv3," Moglen wrote that for him and for his "colleague Richard Fontana, after months of living and breathing GPLv3, the weathers beginning to change."
