GNU, GPL, Open Source A group of 29 Linux kernel developers have recently come together and produced a position statement on GPLv3 [.pdf|.txt] explaining why they don't like the GPLv3. "The three key objections noted in section 5 are individually and collectively sufficient reason for us to reject the current licence proposal. [...] We foresee the release of GPLv3 portends the Balkanisation of the entire Open Source Universe upon which we rely." They've also run a GPLv3 poll.

Because RSM and GPLv3 fail to note that Corporations also have rights.

I'm sorry, but what does this have to do with GPLv3? It also protects corporation's right, but goes one step ahead and also prevents patent trolling upon the FLOSS developers, which is a good thing.
