Stealing something (including intangibles) with positive market value
results in damages (charity or no charity is irrelevant).

Best Buy says that market value of Andersen's contributions to BusyBox
v0.60.3 is ZERO because the copyright owners in the entire BusyBox
program have intentionally made it freely available (zero price to
obtain) to anyone and his dog (and no action by Best Buy has precluded
anyone from accessing the BusyBox program).

It's really simple, dak.
