+ - Nokia urges Linux developers to be cool with DRM->

Submitted by

superglaze writes "Wondering what Nokia's plans for open source are? According to the handset giant's software chief, getting open source developers to accept things like digital rights management, commercial IPR and SIM locks would be a good start. From ZDNet UK:

Jaaksi admitted that concepts like these "go against the open-source philosophy", but said they were necessary components of the current mobile industry. "Why do we need closed vehicles? We do," he said. "Some of these things harm the industry but they're here [as things stand]. These are touchy, emotional issues, but this dialogue is very much needed. As an industry, we plan to use open-source technologies, but we are not yet ready to play by the rules; but this needs to work the other way round too.""
