My $HOME is on an encrypted filesystem. If I have any GFDL documents on
that filesystem, I'm in violation of the license.

If I want to send a friend one of these GFDL documents, I may not use
SSL or any other form of encryption.

If I'm on a shared, multi-user system, I must leave any directories a
GFDL document is in as world-readable; to restrict permissions would be
to use a technical measure to restrict the further reading of the
document.

Are those examples allright? I could come up with more if you'd like.
