GPL (General Public License) is a type of open-source software license that allows users to freely use, modify, and distribute software. The GPL license is commonly used in the software development industry and is known for its “copyleft” provision, which requires that any modifications or derivative works be distributed under the same GPL license.

Here are some key points about the GPL license:

  • Free to use, modify, and distribute
  • Source code must be made available
  • Modifications and derivative works must be distributed under the GPL license
  • Allows for commercial use
  • Compatible with other open-source licenses
  • Ensures software remains open-source and free for future generations

The GPL license is widely used in open-source software projects, including the Linux operating system, WordPress, and many others.
