Oh, so FSF is entitled to own what Apple creates using its own efforts?
Am I entitled to own everything you create using your own efforts? If
so, please send signed, dated copyright assignment via first class mail.
Is Linus Torvalds entitled to gain copyright ownership over everyone
else's code contributions to the Linux kernel? Are you intending to
call everyone who fails to do so a criminal?
Methinks you have a truly bizarre notion of what is a 'crime' and should
consider setting up your own country somewhere else before you get in
trouble with this one's legal system.

So, by that same logic, that is also what every Linux kernel code
contributor other than Linus Torvalds wants? And all of the many
copyright enforcement lawsuits that have succeeded in numerous
jurisdictions filed by a variety of Linux kernel stakeholders are in
fact impossible and must not have existed? Did I get that right?
Logic, Rubin. Learn it before you die.
