Hello Carl,

> I was wondering if it was possible to obtain a EULA for Ubuntu, including the GNU GPL and anything else that may be contained within it?

AFAIK Ubuntu does not have an EULA.

See also: http://www.ubuntu.com/legal

The GPL license can be found here: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html

>From the motd of Hardy (8.04) and it is the same for the new development
version Lucid (10.04):

The programs included with the Ubuntu system are free software;
the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the
individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.

Ubuntu comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by
applicable law.

To access official Ubuntu documentation, please visit:

I'm not a lawyer, nor do I work for Canonical, if you feel this
information is not correct, I would contact Canonical for legal/license
 issues: http://www.canonical.com/legal

Or you could ask the FSF (http://www.fsfe.org/contact/contact.en.html
and/or http://www.fsf.org/about/contact.html) for help.
