OK dude is soooooooo wrong. full of it...

" Q3c: But they released only binaries.

Richard Stallman: Oh, well then they're violating the licence. The developers need to talk to a lawyer, and you can sue them. "

So all of the sudden when someone violates HIS license it's unethical. Even though those programmers are helping by releasing something usefull! To me that's like suing someone because they showed you a trick, but didn't tell you how it works.
