It means that any work under any CC 3.0 does not follow the DFSG unless
the licensor grants additional permission, IMO.
A minimal fix is to change "restrict" in the TPM ban phrases to "have
the intent or effect of restricting" which allows TPM/non-TPM parallel
works and this problem goes away. That phrase has been in CC licences
before (CC Scotland 2.5, for example). Why doesn't CC do that?
Are any details of the iSummit affiliates meetings recorded?
How does CC make decisions? They know how we make decisions and seem
to be hoping the debian project backs down when pushed to a general
resolution. Can we try to make CC put this issue out to a general
resolution? Who are CC's members? I know some CC supporters who are
sympathetic, but I don't think I've met any with established voting
