Parent article: When does the FSF own your code?
Bradley, how about the simple case where you want to own the copyright to your own code? Or what if you want to contribute it to a different project which also requires copyright assignment? I don't get why "I wouldn't want the FSF to claim ownership of code I never intended to submit to it" is such a hard thing to understand?
As for why I used this example, that is easy: because it was there and easy to understand. Even a gadfly might raise an interesting issue.
