Linux Licensing – Linus says no to current draft of GPLv3

Linux Licensing –

Yup, the creator of the most widely known piece of open source software has said that he would not use the current draft of the third version of the general public license. The major complaint is the section on DRM. FSF is basically trying to write GPLv3 so that no one who uses it can keep things like DRM code to themselves. THings like Tivo and such. If you use v3, you can’t make your product in anyway closed.

Linus to this says no.
