The general consensus seems to be:

1) 20th Century Fox owns the "Alien" franchise.
2) "Alien" xenomorphs are born from a Queen.
3) Disney is buying 20th Century Fox.
Therefore
4) Xenomorphs are Disney princesses.

@Purism Just a thought - would it be possible for Librem 5 to have kill switch for USB data lines? As to not allow data transfer when charging using untrusted cables/chargers (like SyncStop, for example).

"When patents invade a new sector of technology β€” genetic research, or the Internet β€” the results follow a standard pattern. Large firms invest more and more in patents, and less in research. Litigation increases exponentially. [...] Patent licensing businesses β€” immune from attack β€” spring up, and so the market divides into large cartels, and trolls, with no space for the small firms that are the source of real innovation."
