Russell Nelson dixit:

> The author has clearly denied the existence of a copyright.

They cannot.

> The courts are unlikely to assign him one against his wishes.

Wrong, at least for the part of the world not USA.

> Who, then, even has any interest in a lawsuit?

Again, it’s not just about being sued over it.
(That being said, copyright violation is still a… felony, I
think, is the English term for it, and this may have effects.)

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.		-- Coywolf Qi Hunt
