Dear Advisory Committee Representatives,
Chairs,

W3C has adopted the Software and Document License [1], an update to the
W3C Software License, as the default permissive license in cases, such
as relicensing of unfinished specs [2], where W3C has decided to use a
permissive license.

The Software and Document License (renamed to indicate its suitability
for text as well as software) is compatible with the GPL, permits
copying and modification with attribution (by inclusion of a reference
to the original W3C document), and can be used in W3C Community Groups,
among other venues.

All work that W3C has previously made available under the prior W3C
Software License [3] is also made available under the Software and
Document License.


For Wendy Seltzer, W3C Counsel;
Coralie Mercier, Acting Head of W3C Marketing & Communications
