GPLv3, GPLv2 and the anti-Tivoization clause are major closed-door topics at automotive Linux meetings. As Linux gains market share in cars and developers enter the field, bringing the debate about owner-modification of potentially lethal consumer products out into light of day will be a service to the wider community. Carmakers, lawmakers and insurance companies are contemplating autonomous navigation, which can only make the controversy grow more heated. Do hardware trusted platform modules or SecureBoot signing keys offer a possible resolution? Does GPLv3 make sense for cars or is a different license needed? Many appropriate alternate panelists exist.
