Exactly. And we need to keep that in mind, to curb this new and
uncalled-for enthusiasm that the O.S. should be free and open,
which of course they're not.

Thanks for disclosing this. The term "DRM" doesn't mix well with
"open", though. The OGC should change its name.
Isn't it funny how I come out as a heretic wine-drinking catholic
in the puritan OpenStreetMap crowd, and at the same time as a
harsh inquisitor here among the Geowanking atheists? It's the
same in operating systems: We Linux users have to fight OpenBSD
puritans (and FreeBSD methodists) on one side, and MS Windows
atheists on the other.
