It's expected - people confuse the law with a license. The law merely sets the boundaries for trade, but it's the licensing permits what people can do with the stuff in the real world.

Pretty much everything is permissable with a license and two willing parties. The GPL wouldn't exist without very strong copyright law setting the boundaries.

Entitlement culture and Big Tech propaganda have done their job. And I'm still waiting for my "legal p2p file sharing".
