| In the ongoing battle between Linux kernel developers and the Free
| Software Foundation (FSF) over the future of the GNU Public License
| (GPL), somehow DVR-maker Tivo has become either the whipping boy or

| Richard Stallman even coined a term for what he sees as misuse of the
| GPL: "tivoization".
