No, it restricts my ability to modify _other_ works, which, IMO, is far worse. Personally, I don't think the DFSG allows it, except by grandfathering it in (see, e.g., DSFG 9). Several times on -legal, the unenforceability of that clause has been questioned: <http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2000/debian-legal-200002/msg00303.html> <http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2001/debian-legal-200106/msg00041.html> <http://people.debian.org/~joey/goals/2.1/contrib-gpl.html> I'd appreciate it if anyone has a good citation for where that belief comes from; my searching has not been able to turn it up.
