The GPL is about giving away software that you write, not about stealing other people's work.
Come on now people. You expect to gain respect for the Linux community by supporting anarchy and theft? Not good.
Lets face it. This whole idea that no patents should be allowed is predicated by the fact that Linux is a hodgepodge of stolen source code. Don't kid yourselves. There is no moral high ground or higher purpose here. It is plain old "I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar, now I need to lie my way out of it".
