Well, not if said rules are unfair. Jesus Christ, Gandhi or Martin
Luther King are respected precisely because they disregarded
fundamental rules of their societies.
More to our point, Richard Stallman goes against a fundamental
principle of our society: that money is sacred and must be protected.
He argues that people must be free to run whatever software they
choose on their machines. I agree with him, and if Microsoft loses a
few dollars in the process due to their weird business model, then
they should improve their business model.
