Read the transcripts of MP discussions when local EUCD/DMCA law are passed. One question they ask is "it will help Hollywood, but will blanket legal DRM protection/mandate hurt any other economic actor ?". Of course the major representatives try to convince them the answer is no.
The GPLv3 is a very clear way to show MPs blanket legal DRM protection/mandate hurts someone.
