    Nope. I'm entirely consistent in my beliefs.

    Yawn...

    I think we all knew what everybody in this whole thread was going to say before it got said.
    No, we didn't. Only some of us like to pretend that they did because they're trying to act smarter than they actually are...

    So using using and distributing someone else's GPL code in a closed application would be fine then in your eyes?

    THIS.

    Only immature brats will think that any form of disobedience should be rewarded.

    While technically true that Activision itself doesn't own Blizzard, Robert Kotick - CEO of Activision prior to the merger - is the CEO of Activision Blizzard, the parent company.

    I can disagree with the part of copyright that monopolizes the copying/sharing of a copyrighted work, while still agreeing with the part of copyright that provides the protection of authorship and allows to set terms for commercial distribution.

    I don't consider commercial distribution and noncommercial sharing between private individuals equal, just like I don't consider commercially publishing a book and sharing a book with your friend equal.
    Ah, so you're just a giant hypocrite.

    Wait, who's Activision, and why do I care?
