6. You're breaking the law by adopting open source
Thanks to SCO, people used to think open-source adoption might be illegal. But fortunately, all that changed when the SCO case was thrown out of court. The use of open-source software does not break any intellectual property laws. Not a single case has proved that open source has infringed on other, proprietary work. So it's safe to say that if you are using open source, you are not considered a law-breaking rebel.
