... thoroughly disgusting, shouldn't FSF(E) comment on that?

As if all that wasn't enough, here's another brick to add to the 
teetering tower of news, courtesy of Andres Guadamuz, a lecturer in law 
at the University of Edinburgh.

Guadamuz has done some digging and discovered that an influential lobby 
group is asking the US government to basically consider open source as 
the equivalent of piracy - or even worse.

And we're still talking "just" open source, not even software libre here...
