I would be happy to see any of my contributed code relicensed
under GPLv3, exactly *because* of the clauses in it which should
prevent both TiVoization and usage for DRM purposes.

Imho, if a company would like to use Rockbox for their product,
then they would have to accept this, even if that means lowering
the chance of rockbox becoming used commercially.

Just my EUR 0.02
