I've put online a document for how GPLv3 addresses DRM:


and one for how it addresses patents:


So when some asks if GPLv3 probits encryption, there's a document which
shows that it doesn't.  Or if you want to research the patent bits, all the
info is in one place.  etc.

To make them, I got the relevent parts of the draft GPLv3 and attached the
public comments made by Stallman and Moglen which were specific to each of
those parts.

So it's the combination of the GPLv3 plus the transcripts:

...distilled down to focus on DRM / patents.

I put this in my blog too:
