GNU, GPL, Open Source Linus Torvalds, father of the Linux kernel, has fleshed out his unhappiness with GPLv3 in three recent posts on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Torvalds previously stated that the kernel will remain under the licensing terms of GPLv2. Yesterday, Torvalds offered his opinion as to where the battle over DRM should take place.

Well. . Not to nitpick, but most libraries you would link to would be under the LGPL. This changes things a bit and means you do not have to release your stuff that links to the LGPL. This way you can use LGPL libraries in non-free programs. Your content would then be safe. Any changes you make to the libraries themselves would have to be distributed however.
