Oh boy, this is an interesting one. Both the legal and ethical questions. 
I haven't ruminate enough to make a judgment on the ethical questions 
involved with this yet, though I definitely agree that the current state 
of things is fraught.

The legal question is curious. I'm no lawyer, so I don't know what the 
legality is on paper. However, in situations like this, the side with the 
money almost always comes out on top. So I doubt anyone will be able to 
successfully sue GitHub over this. Especially considering the potential 
ramifications of the president a ruling like that could set.
