Good for them!  I hope they get more.

I know enough about causation to conclude that this will cause pockets to grow fat.

Ah, now we know why you are so passionated about this, you are simply jealous
and cannot tolerate others getting lots of cash. So instead of being productive, and I dunno... work for a living; you troll from the basement of
 your parents house.


Hey! No jealousy here Alfred! Grab the money and run!

Just make sure there's no grease under the fingernails on the hand that grabs
the money. It is the hypocrisy factor that I object to. You "Free Software"
folks would like the world to believe that the S.F.L.C. is staffed full of
dedicated pro bono folks saving the world from capitalism. To wit:

“SFLC provides pro bono legal services to non-profit Free and Open Source
Software developers and also helps the general public better understand the
legal aspects of Free and Open Source Software.”

The term “pro bono” is used to describe professional work undertaken voluntarily
and without payment as a public service. The socialist "Free Software" agenda
includes lining its advocates pockets just like any other for-profit (think
Microsoft) lobbying effort.
