@item Copyleft
A copyleft is a notice giving the public legal permission to
redistribute a program or other work of art. Copylefts are used by
left-wing programmers to promote freedom and cooperation, just as
copyrights are used by right-wing programmers to gain power over other
redistribute a program or other work of art. Copyright is normally used
to keep users divided and helpless; with copyleft we turn that around
to empower users and encourage them to cooperate.
The particular form of copyleft used by the GNU project is called the
GNU General Public License. @xref{Copying}.
