Samsung (calling SFLC): Hello SFLC, this is Samsung calling. Please be advised that we've made 1 (ONE) BILLION copies of GPL'd material copied verbatim and/or with modifications. Please contact us within 3 (THREE) BUSINESS DAYS if you think that our copies are infringing. (After three days...) Samsung (calling SFLC again): Hello SFLC, this is Samsung calling. Please stick the GPL "permission to pass copies" in Stallman's big ass as we are going to pass our copies under 17 USC 109, thank you. Got it now, silly Hyman? regards, alexander. P.S.
