This version:
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-software-20021231

This formulation of W3C's notice and license became active on December
31 2002. This version removes the copyright ownership notice such that
this license can be used with materials other than those owned by the
W3C, reflects that ERCIM is now a host of the W3C, includes references
to this specific dated version of the license, and removes the
ambiguous grant of "use". Otherwise, this version is the same as the
previous version and is written so as to preserve the Free Software
Foundation's assessment of GPL compatibility and OSI's certification
under the Open Source Definition.
