 The Free World Licence
The Free World Licence is a free software licence that is functionally similar to the GNU General Public Licence (GNU GPL), but allows use only on free operating systems (platforms) such as GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and the GNU HURD (the "Free Software World").
The purpose of The Free World Licence is to provide a means for commercial software vendors to contribute their software to the free software community and experiment with free software business models without threatening the proprietary-platform sales that underwrite their survival.
The licence achieves this by restricting use of the software to free platforms only, a mechanism that is largely successful in separating hackers from suits because of the almost-exclusive use of free platforms by the free software community and the extremely high use of proprietary platforms by the corporate community.

His is a world that works only if the best idea wins; he has no giant marketing budget to compensate for poor technical decisions, no clout in the marketplace to compensate for mediocrity.
The QL, one of the world's first 32-bit boxes, provided Torvalds with his motivation for writing Linux: He wanted an OS for his home computer that would be as stable and strong as Unix, which he used on campus.

At the same time, the world's hyperpower, the U.S., must decide if it will continue to pursue unilaterally its foreign policy of self-interest combined with a Wilsonian edict to spread democracy, or embrace the kind of transatlantic interdependence that already exists in the business world.
The message of Timothy Garton Ashe's FREE WORLD is familiar to those who are informed, but it remains useful because unlike many other English-speaking writers of these times, Ashe is not engaged in polemics.
It points to the trend in the world towards extension of democratic freedoms and believes the West should have the mission of fighting poverty throughout the globe and extending democratic freedoms insofar as this is possible.

Unless special measures are taken, this will make it hard for people in other parts of the world to exercise the rights defended and protected by their respective laws.

This way these resources will stay available for the rest of the world and only those countries who chose to be excluded (by Law) will be deprived of the software or information in question.
