Did you ever notice that GNUtian kooks never base their preposterous
claims on any documented legal authority? After critics cite to a
court decision such as:

". . . rescission of the contract only occurs upon affirmative acts
by the licensor, and a breach by one party does not automatically
result in rescission of a contract. Id. at 238 (”New York law does
not presume the rescission or abandonment of a contract and the
party asserting rescission or abandonment has the burden of proving
it”).”; Atlantis Information Technology, Gmbh v, CA Inc.,, 2007 WL
1238716 (E.D.N.Y. April 30, 2007.

GPL supporters simply parrot their F.S.F. programmed response.

Fire up google sometime and attempt to find any citations by the
F.S.F. legal folks supporting their facetious legal claims. (e.g. 'a
license is not a contract').

Let us hope GPL supporters show more originality in their
programming creations than they do in their legal machinations else
nothing they write would be eligible for copyright.
