I have just seen the following correspondence
which concludes

Well, that is ridiculous. Then the Open Definition v2.0 is useless.
Completely useless.

Was v1.0 the same?

and rather than reply to it myself I thought that I would get an
authoritative opinion.

[Background - the context is Nature's new effort in bringing out DRM'ed (or
TPM'ed) scientific publications. The actual materialt is not Open, so
that's not the point - it is that knowlegeable people can interpret OD as
allowing DRM.
