The European Union has recently approved a new software licence (EUPL v.1.0):

From the preamble:

"For some time, interest has increased in the publication of the software source code under a licence that would not limit access and modifications to the source code.
The original EUPL Licence was established for such software, as corresponding to the IDABC objectives. The Licence is written in general terms and could therefore be used for derivative works, for other works and by other licensors."

I thought gNewSense users and developers might be interested in this. Should software released under this licence be considered free software?
