DRM and GPLv3, and Patents and GPLv3

coriordan writes "FSF-Europe have published a document on how
the draft GPLv3 tackles DRM
, and also one
on how it
tackles patents
. The documents combine
the first draft of GPLv3, and the
of the
launch presentation of GPLv3, by Eben Moglen
, plus transcripts of RMS
at FOSDEM in February
and recently
in Turin, Italy
. The DRM changes to the license are picked out, comments specific to each change are attached to them, and the same
was done separately for patents. These are the two ares that have drawn the most
public discussion, so hopefully these shorter, focused docs will be useful."
