Samsung and several other defendants disagree with you stupid Hyman.

"As a separate and distinct Twelfth Affirmative Defense and each claim
for relief alleged therein, Defendant alleges that Plaintiffs’ claim for
copyright infringement is barred under at least the provisions of 17
U.S.C. § 109(a), as Defendant was licensed and any copies alleged to be
infringing were, therefore, lawfully made."

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.)
