 In relation to Thesis, my girlfriend made an analogy of 'not allowing a
 burglar to repeatedly break into your house' because you know they're
 going to break the law every time.

 So, in the spirit of the GPL(v2), maybe we could just not let WordPress
 allow Thesis or other non compliant themes to work? Change the locks, so
 to speak. :)

 P.S. - 51% kidding and 49% serious :)
