The last time this came up, the lawyer in question also said that people
had to sign a huge contract (complete with their real name, and we all
know how well that tends go down amongst certain people...) agreeing to
turn over any computer they used to work on Gentoo on demand.  Given
that that clearly isn't the case, and given that people have succeeded
in court actions involving Linux (copyright six zillion people), would
it not be wise to consider getting advice from another source?
