LXer: Supporting Free Software by means of Civil Disobedience?

Published at LXer:

The problem lies in the simple fact evident in a logical following of the idea that "software cannot be owned". If software cannot be owned then copyright is invalid as a tool of attaining freedom, period, especially if you actually use it to your advantage. At best your actions contradict your beliefs (in which case you act hypocritically). At worst, you aren't even aware of the gross contradiction you are peddling while genuinely believing that you have it right and that the people whom you condemn as immoral should be punished for what they're doing (as Richard Stallman said "Proprietary software should be illegal").
