The GNU GPL is a specific license.  I consider the term "GPL" to refer to
many licenses that can logically be categorized as a particular type.   For
example, there are a number of GPLs, each similar, but slightly different,
located at http://www.opensource.org.  By contrast, there are a many
different software End User License Agreements ("EULAs").   The Microsoft
EULA for Windows XP is a specific license.  "EULA" is a category for
licenses of this type.

The GNU GPL is tailored for open source software.  The license I just posted
is similar to the GNU GPL in that both fit into the GPL category, but the
license just posted is tailored specifically for schema.
