Linus on Linux Licensing

“The new version of the GNU General Public License, or GPLv3 as it is known, was authored by Free Software Foundation founder Richard Stallman and adds new restrictions to the license. Torvalds isn’t crazy about the new rules but says he still might sign on if changes are made.

In an interview via e-mail with Forbes, Torvalds discusses GPLv3, digital rights management and sharks with laser beams.”

Read Linux Licensing (from Forbes.com). Interesting points of view about licensing and DRM from the man who gave us Linux.
