Not Macbeth, but definitely Hamlet, which is the saga of a young man
who's previously noble and copylefted estate is undergoing proprietary
relicensing and whose father has called him to unveil the truth: that in
fact the current king has hid the fact that not everyone signed the
contributor agreement and so everyone is unquestionably still bound by

Unfortunately everyone kills each other.  Fortunately, that ends the
relicensing deal before it can go through.

  Angels and ministers of grace defend us!--
  Be thou a spirit of health or *goblin* damn'd
  Bring with thee airs from heaven or blasts from hell,
  Be thy intents wicked or charitable,

  [… minor pause in the play! …]

  With, ho! such bugs and *goblins* in my life,--
  That, on the supervise, no leisure bated,
  No, not to stay the grinding of the axe,
  My head should be struck off.

All of this goblin talk was about mediagoblin, we are *officially
endorsed* by Shakespeare, everything is great, this email I'm sending
out isn't a stupid waste of everyone's time or anything.
