Do the lawyers at the SFLC like to collect handsome salaries from
public contributions to their non-profit organization?

Lawyers always get paid. Even lawyers who work for public policy
institutions. If they are getting pad from contributions, it is
from people who share their point of view and are satisfied with
the results, much as I have been a satisfied contributor to the
ACLU, FIRE, and IJ. Just as no one is forced to use the GPL, no
one is forced to contribute to the SFLC.

They have filed five consecutive *clearly frivolous* copyright
infringement suits in the The United States Court of Appeals for the
Second Circuit for which the plaintiffs have no registered copyrights.

After every case they filed, the defendants made the GPLed sources
properly available, giving the SFLC a victory for the express wishes
of their clients, as stated on the client's web site.


Apply any adjectives you like. The outcomes for the SFLC and their
clients have been exactly wjat they wanted.

in gratitude the donations roll in

Nothing brings in donations like success.
