GPL stands for General Public License[1], the first copyleft license for general use, which means that derived works can only be distributed under the same license terms.

Under this philosophy, the GPL grants the recipients of a computer program the rights of the free software definition and uses copyleft to ensure the freedoms are preserved, even when the work is changed or added to.
