I disagree.  Man-made law of every kind is my arch-enemy, and the
purpose of my life is to break those laws.  Without law-breaking life
becomes devoid of meaning.

That is irrelevant to me: I can never be "attacked in court" because

No, it isn't easy.

So what are they going to do?  Send me threats?  How?  By email?  I'll
laugh at them, then hit delete.  By postal mail to my PO box?  There's
a paper recycle bin conveniently located right next to it.  Look up
one of the addresses I've used for receiving shipments, addresses that
look like real physical ones?  Well, they only *look* like real
physical addresses - in reality they are mailbox services.

So GOOD LUCK on trying to force me to show up in court...

It may not be that complicated, but it is morally wrong.  It is
morally wrong to help or support someone who is guilty of hoarding the
good code and denying it to the public.

Harald Welte is the leader of the entire Osmocom family of projects.
He is a former employee of Om-Inc and I have every reason to suspect
that he is hoarding a personal copy of the good code, although he'll
obviously never admit to it.  That makes Osmocom morally tainted,
i.e., it is morally wrong to contribute in any way to any of the
projects under that umbrella, particularly OsmocomBB.

Just to be clear, there is nothing wrong with merely *using* what
those projects have already produced: Leninist philosophy states that
any and all means are acceptable, so we can use whatever tool or
resource does the job.  But it *is* wrong to help them with
contributions.  Therefore, if I ever feel like making enhancements to
the OsmocomBB code base, I'll be sure to make them non-GPL-compatible
so that my work benefits only the illegal community and not the legal

I can still kidnap one of them and do the thermorectal procedure.  And
the prospect of going to prison for kidnapping/assault/battery/
whatever they call it doesn't scare me one bit - I am very confident
of my ability to upload the seized code to some warez site *before*
the cops arrive and get me.  Then I could spend the rest of my life in
prison or perhaps die in a gunfire exchange with the police while
resisting arrest, but the deed will be done: the code will be FREE -
once it hits a public warez site, it'll get copied by all the other
warez sites and the copyright/NDA police will never be able to take
all of those copies down.

NO, NEVER.  If I have NO other option, I would rather take a gun,
shoot one of those bastards who are denying me the good code, then
shoot myself before the cops arrive.  I will be dead, but my tormentor
will be dead too, so that makes it a fair exchange, a life for a life.
