Just a note to let you all know that we've changed the license on the VoxForge site to GPLv3.  Therefore, any new speech submissions to the VoxForge site will now be covered under GPLv.3.

Since all speech submitted to VoxForge thus far included this notice:

Copyright (C) yyyy  [name of author]

which includes the section that says "either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version".  This means that any derivative works (like the VoxForge acoustic models or the VoxForge corpus) that combine GPLv2 speech with GPLv3 speech can be distributed under GPLv3.  Note that we will be updating all licenses in the corpus to GPLv3 in due time (but leaving the original copyright & GPL notice unchanged).

thanks, 

Ken
