Really? They read the law and applied it. Why would you find a
correctly reasoned argument to be flabbergasting? Oh, wait...

A typical PC with a GHZ clock could read segments of a computer
program into memory and execute and wipe that memory in microseconds.

    17 USC § 101
    A work is “fixed” in a tangible medium of expression when its
    embodiment in a copy or phonorecord, by or under the authority
    of the author, is sufficiently permanent or stable to permit it
    to be perceived, reproduced, or otherwise communicated for a
    period of more than transitory duration.

Just because you would like something to be a copyright violation
doesn't it make it so. Don't you tell that to GPL proponents?
