That's why it's good to have a nice clear license like
the GPL. No on reading the GPL can have any doubt about
what the license intends. Certainly cranks, crackpots,
and code grabbers might not want to abide by the license
or believe that its requirements have teeth, but they
cannot plausibly claim to have received a promise that
is not being honored.
