Any collection of bits is "software".  The GPL works very well for any 
collection of bits.  Some people think that it, particularly the requirement 
for provision of source code and the nature of permission to distribute in
forms other than source code, may have problems when
applied to dead-tree printed material.  This is easily dealt with
by dual-licensing under the GPL and a printing-friendly license of
your choice.
