(C) FSF doesn't mean that the code was written by the FSF, retard. Folks 
assign their 100% original code to the FSF on regular basis. Then comes 
FSF's crackpot derivation theory (e.g. gpl-faq.html#OOPLang) and humble 
suggestions along the lines of

Once code is written and placed under the GPL, any code based on that 
code and distributed will also placed under the GPL. Thus, there is 
nothing a university could do with a developer's code if it is based 
on previously GPL'd code anyway. There is no good reason NOT to assign 
code to the FSF.
