Quoting rob AT

Freedom 0 is not the right to play the work on any platform. It is the
right to
use the work freely *as work* once you have it. Freedom 0 is freedom of use,
not freedom of distribution. DRM can remove both freedoms, but it is important
to note that the GPL treats them as separate cases and it is therefore Freedom
0 that "Defective By Design" is defending.

Defective By Design are defending Freedom 1. My apologies for getting that wrong
and for any confusion caused. This is what happens when you switch from Pascal
to C indexing conventions. ;-)

- Rob.
