Those people should be disemboweled. All NASA code is public domain by law, but of course no one actually pays attention to that little detail. The entire "technology transfer" program is an illegal ripoff of the American taxpayers.

For that purpose, and from a loooooooong history of law*, they placed corporations (in this case, a non-profit corporation) in the category of 'person' entitled to the right of speech. That is, they rejected the USG's argument that any number of single persons on their own had a right to say something, but if they came together and pooled their resources into an organization they lost the right to say that same thing.
