If I was a touchy fellow I'd feel offended by it, but being a well mannered 
and weathered guy, I'll just let the bugger pass me by :P

Also it shows the author doesn't know much about how laws are made and what's 
the point of them. That being said, I do think that much of the legal, 
economic and social system (incl. copyright, patents) needs to change quite a 
bit. But that'd be off topic now.

*On topic* I'd also _very_ much like to see what's up with ConTeXt licensing. 
From what it seems it looks like TeX Live is relicensing ConTeXt in its 
distribution. And both helping the Gentoo Licensing team and being Deputy 
Legal Coordinator of the FSFE, that's something that is my concern.
