Why link to the GPL at the creative commons site, and not the FSF itself: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html

Because the CC site has a nice and easy to understand summary of the GPL as well as the full legal code, in the native language of the person accessing the site. Just take a look -- Yoghurt 21:01, 29 Oct 2005 (EDT)
