Yeah. So legal mandates like, for example,


When the communication is in writing, the disclaimer shall be in bold
type face and uppercase letters in a font size that is at least as large
as the largest text used

mean nothing for Moglen. I'm not surprised. Moglen is a blatant
violator of rules like

A lawyer shall not, on behalf of the lawyer or any other lawyer affiliated
with the lawyer or the firm, use or participate in the use of any form of
public communication if such communication contains a false,
fraudulent, misleading, or deceptive statement or claim.

to begin with.
