One more thing I found offensive about this article is that he outright mentions that programmers under deadline pressure will not be conscientious about the license terms.

This is out right offensive and insulting. As a professional programmer and software developer, I must say that I would be offended if somebody stole my work, therefor, in all fairness, I would care very much that the hard work of another creator would not go unrewarded. If it was under GPL/BSD or other such license, I would definitely follow terms in the license that would give credit where it is due and contribute back changes if I changed the original work.
