Repeating Moglen's idiocy doesn't make it less idiocy. Copyright law establishes property rights. Licensing of that property fall into contract law.

regards, alexander.


Moglen is asserting the same kind of idiocy about the GPL3 and patents.
Why doesn't anyone ever read the decision:

Lexmark International, Inc. v. Static Control Components, Inc., 387
F.3d 522 (6th Cir. 2004)?

There is precious little copyright protection left for source code after
the "abstraction-filtration-comparison" test. Source code that forms a
step in a "software" process patent is NOT eligible for copyright
protection in the context of that patent. The GPL3 is 100% FUD
concerning patents and the DMCA.

Moglen proves that if you repeat a falsehood often enough, some gullible
people will think it is gospel truth.
