You've lost the thread. I'm not against the GPL (I've released GPL'ed
software), I am against abolishing copyright (and thus placing all
software and media in the public domain).
Then you lost the thread, we were talking about the GPL and the kernel,
and how following the rules set by kernel devs. is the right thing.
The secondary thread, was on the nature of Intellectual Property, not
about abolishing it.
