Narrow-minded (and perhaps naive) idiot.

How could anyone be contemptuous of anything posted at the exquisitely
researched Groklaw blog? Well... just maybe:

Hmmm... Perhaps a little fact checking is in order when reading
Free Software propaganda. From the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit:

"Although the United States Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. ยงยง 101-1332, grants exclusive jurisdiction for infringement claims to the federal courts, those courts construe copyrights as contracts and turn to the relevant state law to interpret them. Kennedy v. Nat'l Juvenile Det. Ass'n, 187 F.3d 690, 694 (7th Cir.1999)."
