Re:How is any of this news?

What Torvalds thinks about GPLv3 is very much news. We knew from his previous posts on the subject, that he didn't like it because of its DRM restrictions.

In this new group of posts on the mailing list, he goes into great detail about WHY he feels that way, and where he thinks the DRM battle should be fought.

You may not agree with his views, many don't, but this is a critical time for the GPL, and what Torvalds thinks, does, and says about it is very much news.
