     initial comments 
      == Comments ==
    + FSF is author or maintainer of GPL?
    + Can't truly call a process with so many opaque steps as public. The committees A-E and the comments forwarders seem similar to the Vienna manipulations.
    + The optional "terminate on almost all patent action" clause sucks. It's not nice to mix copyright and patent licences: doesn't FSF speak out against "Intellectual Property" language because it confuses the two issues? There could be a GPL-c and a GPL-p split. I guess our legislators have shoved the DRM stuff into copyright law, so including that is reasonable.
