This is the old DRM problem. It does not look to be resolved with this
particular wording.


Hmm, I'm not sure why Debian doesn't like that. Are they going to have similar problems with the anti-DRM stuff in GPLv3?

Also, what are the advantages of this license versus something like GPL? I know it's often used for artwork, but not why.
