"that the video evidence of the impostor, which would have completely exculpated Ousmane Bah, had been routinely deleted."
How convenient. I hope he wins, SIS and Apple need to pay him.
"The arresting officer was able to identify the impostor as Mamadou Barrie, a friend of the Plaintiff, who apparently stole the learner’s permit from the Plaintiff,"
Nice friend, I hope he is made to pay Ousmane too.

Re: That's what you get when software has to cost nothing
Freedom in this case means that you can modify the software however you want to since the source code is available.
The four freedoms are:
The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom 0).
The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help others (freedom 2).
The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

"Open source developers"
Free software programmers respect the 4 freedoms. Open source programmers don't always respect the 4 freedoms.
The freedoms are:
(0) to run the program,
(1) to study and change the program in source code form,
(2) to redistribute exact copies, and
(3) to distribute modified versions.
Open source doesn't always guarantee the freedom to distribute exact copies or modified versions, or even the right to modify the software for private use.
