Legal EULAs, and whatever nonsense they may contain, are legally binding in the US. Have a great weekend!

The GPL is free code that requires you to change how you license your code if you use it. I don't think anyone here thinks thats wrong, even though that power goes WAY beyond the power a person would have if they sold you something. When Linksys (for example) broke the terms of the license, nobody said that the GPL should be overturned, they wanted the freakin code, because if Linksys didn't want to abide by the terms of the GPL, they shouldn't have used it.


GPL is about copyright. As someone pointed out, copyright is not the same as ownership. For example, if you have bought a book, can you claim that whatever said in the book is now yours? No! But, can you resell the book? Yes!
