Stallman, Torvalds, Moglen share views on DRM and GPLv3

With the recent release of the second draft of the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPLv3), digital rights management (DRM) is back in the news. The new draft may raise concerns about the rewording of section 3 of the license, which deals with DRM. The Free Software Foundation dislikes the term “digital rights management” and instead choose to call it digital “restrictions” management. But many people don’t understand the implications of DRM on free software like Linux.
