The kernel community is one of the most visible and vocal parties when it
actually has something to say in the public.
The kernel community is the biggest project that is closest to the hardware, so you should not be surprised that we have a direct (and vocal) opinion when it comes to issues of the GPLv3 trying to control hardware. We are dealing with tons of hardware issues today, our work has been DRM-ed by Tivo, and we'll be amongst the first ones suffering the fallout of any negative effect of a bad license change in this area.
