Oh, I think, in the dark, dusty, cobweb covered recesses of what passes for his mind, he intends to do so, in order to show that he's a manly man and a rebel, and all that. I just don't think he ever will.

I didn't say he should do that, I said I expect he would, if he were arrested. Honestly, it's hard to imagine he would ever show the technical skill or marketing ability to make enough of a splash to actually get noticed that much. If he were to try, and produce a web site that actually worked (and didn't immediately get compromised by malware writers due to poor security), I would expect it would last about a week, and get taken down via DMCA notice, and that would be that. He'd whine about it here, to the usual chorus of pointing and laughing, but he wouldn't do anything to resurrect it. And not enough people would bother with it to be worth pushing for criminal enforcement.

But if he did manage to get arrested for criminal copyright infringment, I'd expect he'd cave at the first opportunity, logical or not. He's no martyr, no matter how much he wishes he was.
