what i particulary like about the plf name is the "liberation" word,
which has a clear positive meaning.
every other suggestions in this thread has a negative connotation
'tainted', 'swamp', etc.

Wording should not convey the meaning that it is illegal, thus _wrong_
to use this kind of software.

Wording should convey the meaning that using this kind of software is a
way to express personal freedom without really committing any _wrong_.

I would really hate if a free software distribution fell in the trap of
supporting the idea that software patents are _right_.
