So I think we can both agree that copyright today goes too far.

I don't think that computer source should have copyright protection

If computer source doesn't have copyright protection then, of course,
it's fine to distribute GPL'd code without including the license.  As
you're advocating that it's ok to distribute without including the
license, then you're conclusion is that source code doesn't have
copyright protection?

I said that I think that it should not have copyright protection not that it doesn't have it. That would require a change to the law, eh? But then there wouldn't be any issue for the SFLC to sue over either. If you somehow got a hold of Microsoft's source, you would be able to use it, too. Of course if they were being protective, you would probably have to violate some other law to get your hands on it, so you might still be at some risk.
