AGPL-3.0的第13條是與GPL-3.0唯一不同的地方,原文如下:

13. Remote Network Interaction; Use with the GNU General Public License.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, if you modify the Program, your modified version must prominently offer all users interacting with it remotely through a computer network (if your version supports such interaction) an opportunity to receive the Corresponding Source of your version by providing access to the Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge, through some standard or customary means of facilitating copying of software. This Corresponding Source shall include the Corresponding Source for any work covered by version 3 of the GNU General Public License that is incorporated pursuant to the following paragraph.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed under version 3 of the GNU General Public License into a single combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work, but the work with which it is combined will remain governed by version 3 of the GNU General Public License.

其中又以第1項最為重要,因為就是這一項的規定讓AGPL-3.0具有網路授權拘束性。重要的條件有下列幾項:

  1. 原程式必須經過修改,簡單來說,也就是有產生衍生程式;
  2. 透過網路,使用者與衍生程式產生互動,白話來說,就是使用者透過網路來使用衍生程式;
  3. 這個網路是電腦網路,不過在這個智慧型無線產品充斥市場、電信業者與網路提供者合作密切的時代,傳統電腦網路的實質內涵已經產生變化,這裡的電腦網路是否真的只侷限簡單的電腦網路概念,我想還有很多討論的空間;
  4. 衍生程式服務的提供者,必須要提供使用者可以透過網路獲得原始碼的管道。

總之,還是有很多的灰色地帶。
