Dude sold out his morals and now wants to make a stand on those same morals. No matter how you try to slice it, while the message in itself may have resonance, it feels trite for HIM to be making such a glorious show of things and suddenly standing as some form of avatar for creator's rights.
So, once you make a decision, you can never make a better one? Interesting. Not that I haven't heard this before, mind you.
