Bringing free software to the masses

It is time to show a contrast. GPL 3 is the first stake in the ground against DRM. For the first time, someone has said, "That’s it; we’re stopping it."

When we release the second draft of GPL 3 sometime in June, we’re going to be campaigning to end DRM. We will be campaigning with manufacturers and to get computer users to care about this issue–to not buy their hardware from certain manufacturers and to pinpoint the fact that if you’re downloading music, there are a lot of restrictions on how you can use it. For example, you can’t share it with friends, and the next device you buy may not allow you to play music you have already downloaded and paid for. §
