Fire up google sometime and attempt to find any citations by the F.S.F. legal folks supporting their facetious legal claims.

Well, comrade Moglen is on record:

------ What are your reflections on the work with the FSF?

What we did was get thousands of people from around the world collaborate on a legal document which replaces law. It establishes an alternative rule set for the entire global environment.

A *legal* document that replaces *law*? Yeah. . . "We never lose we
just mooooooooooooove the goalposts.

If you want to use these rules anywhere on earth you can. It is very important in a global century. What we did was a very early
 example of 21st century global legislation. ------

WTF happens if I *don't* want to use his rules which have "replaced"
law? Do I get lashed with a wet noodle?

IOW this pompous moron pretends that the FSF/SFLC is some sort of
 global legislative body and judicial authority at the same time.
 He is insane.

Note that the clown also claimed:

------ To increase its popular usage, does free and open source software require good PR?

If you are Microsoft, you have to pay money to make software. You
have to hire people, buildings, paper clips, telephones, pensions.... Then sell software with salesmen... Then have lawyers to protect the software.

We don’t have to pay anybody to make the software. Smart people all over the world make our software. Biggest corporations around the world clamour to distribute the software because it is profitable. And we don’t have armies of lawyers to protect it because we don’t protect it, we just say take it and do good things with it. Just share and share alike.

Army of lawyers? They don't even have *one* competent lawyer at the
SFLC who can file a complaint that will hold up to a challenge
under F.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(1) -- they are experts however, who know how
to file voluntary dismissals under F.R.Civ.P. 41(a)(1).
He. He.
