The CP-conserving triple-gauge-boson couplings, g(1)(Z), kappa(gamma), lambda(gamma), g(5)(Z), kappa(Z) and lambda(Z) are measured using hadronic and semi-leptonic W-pair events selected in 629 pb(-1) of data collected at LEP with the L3 detector at centre-of-mass energies between 189 and 209 GeV. The results are combined with previous L3 measurements based on data collected at lower centre-of-mass energies and with the results from single-W production and from events with a single-photon and missing energy. Imposing the constraints kappa(Z) = g(1)(Z) - tan(2) thetaw(kappa(gamma) - 1) and lambda(Z) = lambda(gamma), we obtain for the C and P conserving couplings the results:
