In a post-Snowden day and age, I can't understand just *how* people can justify anti-GPLv3 (and anti-copyleft) sentiment.
Allowing tivoization is allowing spying, forever.
Allowing proprietarization (XNU was "open source" until OSX 10.3? 10.4?) is allowing spying, forever.
Only copyleft cures that. Only copyleft empowers users against that kind of shit.
Copyleft is not really good for the behemot-likes of Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft -- the Big Four nominated for their haemorraging of your private intel to the NSA. It's only good for each of their two billion users/assets/products. Copyleft lowers the cost of change; enterprises loathe lowering that particular cost.
IMNSHO, individuals who choose "liberal licensing" are helping big companies to plot the end of privacy, and maybe of any semblance of democracy present today in the world. Small enterprises that choose "liberal licensing" are just paving the way for the big enterprises to come and crush them, and it suits them right.
