Said GNUtian "Huh? You can't be held to a contract you did not sign"

Assume defendant's line of reasoning that the contract is in force but
its certain provision(s) are void/unenforcable or in alternative that
the contract gives rise to the doctrine of copyright misuse making
plaintiffs copyrights void/unenforcable "until the misuse has been
purged and its effects no longer exist" (voiding the entire contract due
to lack of consideration and/or illegality but providing impunity to
infringe plaintiff's copyrights).


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
