See these previous interviews with Eben Moglen: 2 Feb 2005 and 22 Nov 2004.
Short summary: the GPL v3 is expected to be very similar to v2, but to have some tweaks to make it more international and translatable, will have more explicit defenses against patent litigation, will describe how the license interacts with "trusted computing", and will possibly include as an option some provision for software that is used over a network (perhaps similar to the Affero General Public License, which was written in consultation with the FSF).
