I take issue with a Good Cop principle. There is no such thing - if you want to
use so-called legal system and IP property laws you become just one of the
parties that help maintain the whole thing, enriching lawyers and "leaders"

small fraction of loud ones. Exploited in $, celebrity status and attention
grabbing sense.
