There are several parts to that "position".  Even if you consider
parts of that position shere lunacy, analog lunacy has had a fair
share of successes in court.

Some of the more strenuous points, I guess, the FSF would not mind
getting thrown out of court since it would constitute a precedence
also affecting proprietary software.

However, there is a notable absence of enthusiasm for challenging such
positions in court.
