Open ID 2.0 GPPL?!

I know nothing about the legal side of licencing, but this post from Lukas Ros was enought to get me conerned.

I'm sure there is a good reason why they choose the GPPL licence - i'm just not sure what it is yet. Anyone know?

Does this apply to just using software that implements the Open ID 2.0 protocol (which would surely harm its adoption) or is it prevent writing software that implements it?

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone with knowledge in this area would clarify all of this!

GGPL does not exist. I made it up for April Fools Day.

Thanks Lukas - i should maybe have checked the date.

More worrying for me is that being from the UK that the idea of such a license wasn't completely ridiculous to me!
