Subject[PATCH v2 5/6] copyleft-next: remove section 7 - anti-tivoization
Date
From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <mcgrof@do-not-panic.com>

The anti-tivoization clauses must go if we want this license
to be ever considered for usage with the Linux kernel.
This patch removes that entire section.

The re-enumerating of the sections is done separately
to make it easier for review.

- A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any

-typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
-of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
-actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
-is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial

- The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
