Seriosly, as for Dan Wallace, I've told him

"I suggest you file a request for hearing en banc. If the
price for doing it is a restraint, please let me know."

to under Easterbrook's moronic ruling in which the Chief Judge managed
to confuse the GPL with public domain and the rest of FOSS, other silly
reasonings aside for a moment, but Dan Wallace declined.

He replied:

"And so it is with operating systems. Many
more people use Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X, or Sun
Solaris than use Linux. IBM, which includes Linux with
servers, sells mainframes and supercomputers that run
proprietary operating systems. The number of proprietary
operating systems is growing, not shrinking, so competition
in this market continues quite apart from the fact that the
GPL ensures the future availability of Linux and other
Unix offshoots." -- Easterberook

This appellate level ruling completely peels The United States 
Department of Justice's Antitrust Division off Microsoft's back.

Microsoft is is now FREE,  FREE,  FREE to leverage its' software 
patents against open source software. 

This ruling signed a death warrant for free software. So why 



P.S. "Every computer program in the world, BusyBox included, exceeds the
originality standards required by copyright law."

P.P.S. "Of course correlation implies causation! Without this 
fundamental principle, no science would ever make any progress."

(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.)
