The affero general public licence is trying to extend this to the ASP 
world. This is an excellent idea to extent Freedom in other specific area 
where the GNU general public license version 2 is not well suited. 

We think that the Affero GPL is a small step to the next GPL version 3.

So we are waiting to change from GPLv2 to GPLv3... ;-)
