Re: Anti-TPM clauses
non DFSG-free. Debian legal is only a mailing list to discuss licenses,
by no means it is a tribunal that can take official decision. Only the
ftp masters or a vote can decide litigious cases.
And whom do the ftp-masters themselves answer to? Quis custodiet ipsos
custodes? Debian is answerable to the public, you know.
That said, I agree with the FTP-masters on allowing CC-3.0-BY and
I feel such anti-TPM clauses are meant like copylefting, to ensure that
no recipient of a licensed work takes away the freedom of a
further-downstream recipient. I also feel that such clauses should be
interpreted in the *spirit* of the DFSG rather than the letter. And I
feel that the spirit of the DFSG is in accordance with any attempt to
prevent anything that is against freedom.
I don't know what was discussed previously on this list about this, but
that's my Rs 2.
