OpenBSD "I, Michael Buesch, am one of the maintainers of the GPL'd Linux wireless LAN driver for the Broadcom chip (bcm43xx). The Copyright holders of bcm43xx (which includes me) want to talk to you, OpenBSD bcw developers, about possible GPL license and therefore copyright violations in your bcw driver. We believe that you might have directly copied code out of bcm43xx (licensed under GPL v2), without our explicit permission, into bcw (licensed under BSD license)."

This is actually the most offensive and inflammatory comment I've seen in this whole fiasco, and I'm pretty sure I've read nearly all of them, all across the net.

I would have voted it down, but was surprised to find that I can't, because it's coming from an OSN Staff member.
