That's basically a copyleft scheme.

I think that's what it was meant to be. However, it is overly broad. For example, given a document A.tex under the GFDL:

	$ cp A.tex B.tex

I have now made a a copy of a GFDL'd work. The paragraph seems to apply.

	chmod go-rw B.tex

Wow, I've now used a technical measure to obstruct and control the reading and copying of my copy.

I'd better not access my file server over a IPSEC VPN, either!
