Re:Would someone please explain Linus DRM

While I partly agree with you, I see a problem. Where do you draw the line? I must admit that I haven't read the GPL V3 yet but from the discussion it seems that unmistakably defined what DRM exactly is. Can you write GPLed Software for a System that only allows signed binaries but also only allows signed content if the same mechanism is used? There really is a gray zone between the two and I guess Stallman and his FSF are on one side and most pragmatic others are on the other.
