Summary:
The problem Schmitz has with GPLv3 is that it’s ideological. He doesn’t like the preamble. But the GPLv3 preamble deals with software patents, which are illegal under European law. Also, Schmitz feels, the GPLv3 contains specific terms and technical jargon. EUPL is not based on simple “principles” which local courts may interpret under their copyright laws.
