The license does not matter. The whole software infringes on my copyrights

The identity function is quite useful in the following circumstance : 
suppose I make a box [foo bar], where bar is the name of an abstraction, 
which is instantiated inside [foo]. The point of doing this is to use 
[bar] as a modifier for [foo]'s behaviour, without having to create [bar] 
"manually" outside of [foo]. Then if you don't want to use a modifier, you 
specify a class that does "nothing". This would usually mean one [inlet] 
and one [outlet] connected directly, though there are some other patterns 
involving extra unconnected [inlet]s and other stuff.
