GNU Affero General Public License

A GNU license for developers who make their software available to users on network servers. The Affero GPL includes a provision that enables developers to download the source code. It was created to overcome the so-called "application service provider loophole" (ASP loophole) in the regular GNU GPL, which does not address this issue for ASPs that offer software-as-a-service (SaaS).

Affero and GNU Affero
Based on the GNU GPL Version 2, Version 1 of the Affero GPL was published in 2002 by Affero, Inc., founded by Henry Poole. In 2007, the GNU Affero GPL was published by the Free Software Foundation and was based on GNU GPL Version 3. See GNU General Public License and Free Software Foundation.
