Parent article: Kernel developers' position on GPLv3
I am not a developer apart from a minor hack of the floppy driver for my perticular Mother board (an old 386 baseed bord some years ago) but it strikes me this whole thing needs looking at in a slightly different direction
The question of the Tivo'ised software quite simple in reality
You choose to use open sourced software in your device (the maker this is to ) therefore you are not allowed to encode , encrypt or other such methods ANY part of the code or systems used no keys to do this that or other .
As for DRM well if enough people could be bothered to act on the problem it would be dealt with in short order but too many people are of the "SHEEP" breed and blindly follow ,If the "SHEEP" would remove the BLINKERS the the content providers would soon be wetting there collective nappies because there would be NO income for them because no one would be buying ther vcrap to start with .
but alas we live in a world dominated by "SHEEP" and "SHEEP SH*****S" that contine to milk said "SHEEP"
