Yeah, I wasn't really buying his argument at the end. His software may be brilliant, but reasoning with administration is just a fool's errand. Chances are they will kick him out and there may or may not be a lengthly legal battle, which Yale can easily bankroll.

I disagree, he has the press on his side almost automatically. This is going to be a reasonably important copyright precedent case -- some organization will pay for a legal battle if there is one.

minimum_wage, you'll be happy to know that I actually have a professor who attended Yale and when I showed him this post he got a bit frothy. Normally he's hilariously liberal and progressive but he sided with Yale's dean without even thinking about it. Kinda funny really.
