You seem to be mistaking the Debian Free Software Guidelines and the Social Contract as principally legal documents. They are not; they are moral, technical, and societal documents.

This is a mailing list for people involved with Debian to consider legal issues. In many places in the world, it's expected that citizens can understand the law and make decisions based on it. In fact, some people see it as a citizen's obligation.

It's unlikely that you're going to get legal advice from an attorney over a mailing list. If you're seeking legal advice for a particular problem, you should contact a lawyer in your area who's familiar with your country's and region's civil code and copyright, patent, and trademark laws.

Finally, if your intention is to stimulate interest by Debian project members and other Debian participants in the Against DRM 2.0 license, lashing out is the worst way to do that. You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

Good luck,
