It has not. The closest you get to source is the original version. And if the
original version is only available on a DRM-laden system you cannot move it to
other system.

This is why pleas for DRM are *not* pleas for user freedom.

Shhhh! The point is that not allowing DRM restricts people's freedom, because
any ban on restricting freedom is obviously a restriction on freedom, and we
cannot have restrictions on freedom. Everybody knows that! ;-)
