The goal of the GPL is to ensure that when someone gets the software, they are free to help themselves and to cooperate with others. When someone gets a Tivo, they might want to remove the spyware or add a "copy" button. Unfortunately, to the user of a Tivo, the source is viewable, but cannot be modified to make the computer (the Tivo) do what they want.
More importantly, could you say what part of the draft introduces use limits?
All it says is that Tivo is free to modify the software to suit their needs, and I'm free to modify the software to suit my needs after I get it from them.
