@Akira, I'm with you 100% on the "criminality" of hunting enthusiasts down. It's absolutely disgusting. But whether or not you agree with me about the value of open source for development, I hope you will agree with me that at least destroying the so-called intellectual property rights via that process, would be a good thing.
And yes, for fuck's sake, let's put rub pennies together and employ these developers. Again, see Patreon... But first things first, we need to liberate the OS so they have a legally comfortable base to work from. Now, do I need to hire an attorney and start from scratch, or will you guys who know about the legal situation speak up?
