That is not what I said, and very far from what I meant.  And you
actually know that, but desire to waste everyone's time anyway.

What I meant included things like 'People in general and very
large corporations have no problem deploying open source software 
including codebases under popular reciprocal licences without infringing
copyrights, through the simple expedient of not attempting to play
aggressive brinksmanship games with property rights.  Someone else might
volunteer to give random coders free legal advice about whereexactly 
the brink is, but I have many better things to do with my time.'
