The laws were set up to help nonfree software.  We have to back-drive
them to get a result that wasn't envisioned.  This is why copyleft is
sometimes called a legal hack.

I agree it is a sad state of affairs.  But that is what we find
ourselves in.  It is up to us to try to win freedom out of this.
