Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The problems with DRM are many, but that does not mean we
should prevent people from using it. There are good reasons to let
them suffer the consequences of their own bad choices....
"Richard Stallman and the FSF guide the definition of that term
of propaganda, "Free Software". They have decided to lead the Linux
community merrily down the garden path of "DRM is evil and should
be disallowed by law". The definition of open source software in
general, on the other hand, does not require any such legal battle
against DRM per se. "
