Linux "As my colleague Michelle Menga is reporting, Amazon is now making new source code available for its Amazon Kindle. Basically what it represents is, Amazon's responsibility to make the GPL licenced source code that is used in the Kindle available to others. That's part of the GPL license and Amazon is doing its part. Digging into the code that Amazon is now making available, provides some really interesting insight into the underlying structure of the Kindle."

> FSF, please get bent. If you don't like how someone uses the license, then rewrite it.

Actually they did rewrite the license. The GPLv3 prevents TIVOization. But the linux kernel uses GPLv2.
