Parent article: Kernel developers' position on GPLv3
"We believe that the focus of the GPL should be on the elements that encourage collaborative participation, which include simplicity, enforced code-sharing, and end-user freedom."
Please remove the "end user freedom" from the list. It is not compatible with DRM. Thank you.
FSF is a end user concerned entity. This all started because of a Printer user. And the latest is because of a PVR user. The problems are the same. The GPL is being thwarted by a technological measure. If it is illegal to remove a technological measure for piracy, why is it legal to use a technological mesure for breaking GPL.
