I believe the FSF has legal counsel, so RMS should be well respresented.
What about RMS?

Eben Moglen (FSF's attorney) and I both serve as expert witnesses and I had the opportunity to depose him recently - in a case you never heard of and probably never will. He handled it very well.
Moglen is a former Supreme Court clerk (for Thurgood Marshall, I believe), a respected professor of law at Columbia, and a world-class expert in free software and open source licenses. He's charismatic, well-spoken, and knows copyright law very well.
He's just about the last person I'd want to tangle with in a copyright infringement case.
