GPL = GNU General Public License

See http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html

It is generally used for a majority of linux software projects and GNU
software. It is generally used to provide a mechanism for ensuring open
development on software projects. See also:

Related to open publications, I would recommend looking into the
Open Content Project.

See http://www.opencontent.org/

IANAL, however, web based content might be better served using the
OCL ( Open Content License: http://opencontent.org/opl.shtml ) or the OPL
( Open Publication License: http://opencontent.org/openpub/ )
