I think you have misread this article. Nowhere does it support any implication that the name they gave the activity meant anything to the court. Change every instance of "Death Star" to "Cute Puppies" and the article reads the same. The state of mind of the suspects is important, but they aren't using the name "Death Star" to do that.
You're simply wrong, and it's time to concede. Your "silly" metaphors about crimes have nothing to do with the one I presented in the original post because I never suggested that anyone engage in any illegal activity.
