FSF Uses Android FUD To Push GPLv3

jfruhlinger writes “We’ve already seen claims from Edward Naughton and Florian Mueller that most Android distributors are in violation of the GPL — claims that the open source community has, for the most part, rejected. Therefore it’s disheartening to see that the FSF is using this line of reasoning to push the GPL v3 over the supposedly more troublesome GPL v2. The FSF’s press release on the subject emphasizes ‘worries’ without bringing up a specific concrete case of infringement — a classic FUD technique.”
