    This IL code:

    .method public hidebysig virtual
        instance void GetObjectData (
            class [mscorlib]System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo info,
            valuetype [mscorlib]System.Runtime.Serialization.StreamingContext context
        ) cil managed
        .permissionset demand = {
            [mscorlib]System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermissionAttribute = {
                property bool SerializationFormatter = bool(true)
        IL_0000: ldarg.1
        IL_0001: brtrue.s IL_001d
        IL_0003: ldc.i4.1
        IL_0004: br.s IL_0009
        IL_0006: ldc.i4.0
        IL_0007: br.s IL_0009
        IL_0009: brfalse.s IL_000b
        IL_000b: br.s IL_000d
        IL_000d: ldstr "info"
        IL_0012: ldstr "Argument 'info' cannot be null."
        IL_0017: newobj instance void [mscorlib]System.ArgumentNullException::.ctor(string,  string)
        IL_001c: throw
        IL_001d: ldarg.1
        IL_001e: ldstr "type"
        IL_0023: ldarg.0
        IL_0024: ldfld class [mscorlib]System.Type Atalasoft.Imaging.AtalasoftLicenseException::b
        IL_0029: callvirt instance void [mscorlib]System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo::AddValue(string,  object)
        IL_002e: ldarg.0
        IL_002f: ldarg.1
        IL_0030: ldarg.2
        IL_0031: call instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::GetObjectData(class [mscorlib]System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo,  valuetype [mscorlib]System.Runtime.Serialization.StreamingContext)
        IL_0036: ret

    decompiled as:

    [SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, SerializationFormatter=true)]
    public override void GetObjectData(SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext context)
        if (info != null)
            info.AddValue("type", this.b);
            base.GetObjectData(info, context);
            bool flag = true;
            throw new ArgumentNullException("info", "Argument 'info' cannot be null.");

    Hint: strange !flag; line of code.

    Hi Scott,

     Please excuse me for the delayed response. At the moment we don't support decompilation of obfuscated code, so statements like this are not a rare case. However, we've logged the issue and we'll definitely try to fix it at some later stage. Stay tuned for updates and don't hesitate to contact us about anything else that bothers you in JustDecompile.
