Because of the author of atscap's illegal attempt to revoke the GPL on previously released copies of atscap, the Slashdot discussion ( http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/01/26/0341210 ) has resulted in a new GPL fork of atscap being released on sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/atscap-gpl/

The GPL specifically forbids revocation of the freedoms granted in clause 4:

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
(this quote is from the GPL LICENCE file distributed with atscap)

The copy of atscap that is presently being forked to become the sourceforge seed is a couple months old. If anyone has a copy of a later revision or better yet the latest GPL copy from just before the author's illegal attempt to revoke the licence, they should contact the Sourceforge project maintainer and give the new project a copy of that version as well.
