  GNU Free Documentation License - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is the counterpart to the GNU GPL 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.
While the Document itself is wholly editable, and is essentially covered by a license equivalent to (but both-ways incompatible with) the GNU General Public License, some of the secondary sections have various restrictions designed primarily to deal with proper attribution to previous authors.
The project eventually voted [1] to consider works licensed under the GFDL to be free provided the invariant section clauses are not used.

GNU Free Documentation License Version 1.2, November 2002 Copyright (C) 2000,2001,2002 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
PREAMBLE The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially.
This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense.

 GNU Free Documentation License
The Debian-legal group considers that the GFDL is "non-free", since it fails the Debian Free Software Guidelines [1] [1].
The license explicitly separates the "Document" from "Secondary Sections", which may not be integrated with the Document, but exist as front-matter materials or appendices.
While the Document itself is wholly editable, and is essentially covered by a license equivalent to (but bothways incompatible with) the GNU General Public License, some of the secondary sections have various restrictions designed primarily to deal with proper attribution to previous authors.

 ONLamp.com -- Open Source and Free Documentation Licenses, Part 1: The GNU FDL
Because documentation does not have the same fluidity and power that code does, it is an open question whether open source principles will prove to be as revolutionary in connection with such works as they have been with software.
This is the so-called "viral" effect of the GNU system of licenses: works licensed under a GNU license, works derived from those works, works derived in turn from such derivative works, and on and on, can only be licensed under the GNU license under which the original work itself was licensed.
The license quite explicitly attaches the principle of copyleft to the licensed work, permitting the free distribution or modification of the work so long as the distributed or modified work is itself licensed under the GNU FDL.

 FSF - Licenses
The primary incompatibility is that this Python license is governed by the laws of the "State of Virginia", in the USA, and the GPL does not permit this.
This is a Free Documentation license that is incompatible with the GNU FDL.
Likewise, if you use this license without either of the options to make your manual free, someone else might decide to imitate you, then change his or her mind about the options thinking that that is just a detail; the result would be that his or her manual is non-free.

 The GNU Operating system
The GNU Project was launched in 1984 to develop a complete UNIX like operating system which is free software: the GNU system (GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”; it is pronounced guh-noo, like canoe).
Variants of the GNU operating system, which use the kernel Linux, are now widely used; though these systems are often referred to as “Linux”, they are more accurately called GNU/Linux systems.

 GNU "Free Documentation License" Considered Harmful
Debian is apparently moving to deprecate the GNU Free Documentation License (below, "FDL"), and apparently to exclude FDL-licensed free documentation from distributions.
Thus, widespread use of the FDL for documentation of software that is itself distributed under a different license strongly suggests that copyrights of such software should be concentrated in a monopoly.
The GNU Free Documentation License is directly harmful to freedom, and further causes substantial "frictional" harm to free software development unless copyrights of free software are held by a small number of closely related agencies.
