Okular, Debian, and copy restrictions

(not saying it isn't simple in Okular as I haven't used it)

That's four clicks. The checkbox is checked by default.

I think the article can be read in two ways: I read it first as please Okular guys remove that feature from the code, and the second time (after reading your comment) realised that it could (should?) be read as please Okular/KDE/Debian guys set the default option to not enforce the restriction, which they don't want to do.

Useless denigrating comments

Also, I do hope the 'F' in TFA meant 'featured', because over here at LWN people usually tend to be polite to each other.
But I do realise that, although this did not use to be too much the case on LWN, people like to tell others off and punish them, rather than trying to understand them. I can see that on the road to work every day.

1. Most users would realise there was an option
2. Most users would understand what "DRM" was and what obeying it meant
3. There wasn't fair use and other perfectly valid reasons to not let technology but policy set the limits.
