The biggest difference between affirmative rights defenses is that you can't sue someone for violating your defense. You can only use it to defend yourself if you get sued.
What I am arguing is that we should, if we want to have some role for Open Source in society's future other than supporting locked-down systems, respect other folks rights as we would have them respect ours.
