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.

----------Actually, there is something else that consumer can use to fight DRM: litigation through class-action lawsuits. Many of the DRM strategies put forth by the MPAA and the RIAA go against the constitutional rights of Fair Use.------------

No they don't. The problem is that you are forgetting that it isn't just the MPAA and the RIAA who are in this fight. You also have scumbags like Dr Dre and Metallica who would label us all a bunch of thieves.

It's the Dre's and Metallica's of the world who are pushing the MPAA and RIAA to do what it does.

Go ahead and look up their comments on google. (remember napster!)
