Submission + - GPLv3 is DRM

An anonymous reader writes: This post says:

"Imagine: some software/music, say GCC, is released/distributed under GPLv2. People can do whatever they want with it: redistribute it, reuse it in their own source code/music, or whatever. Then GPLv3 comes out. Suddenly the software/music won't work on/play in your hardware/software."

Please comment, I hope I'm wrong.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
