I am not a lawyer, but…

This is a recurring phrase I keep seeing when discussing software licenses, but also other aspects of “the law”. And I have something to say about it.

Guys, we need to stop this nonsensical notion that law falls under some kind of non-Euclidian geometry. Judges have to follow the same rules of logic that every other science abides by. And I don’t know of any country where you aren’t allowed to represent yourself in court. So just be a bit more confident in discussing legal matters. If you’re not a member of the legal profession, I don’t see how you can be sued by anybody for “having said so”. So please.

This post may contain elements of sarcasm and light humour. Please don’t sue me. Yeah, right!
