Legal "After years of encouragement from the OpenBSD community for others to use Reyk Floeter's free atheros wireless driver, it seems that the Linux world is finally listening. Unfortunately, they seem to think that they can strip the BSD license right out of it." Update: The issue has been fixed, but sadly, lkml.org is down, so I cannot give any links just yet.

For all those rabid GPL fans out there who are always so quick to jump on anything they perceive as violating the GPL, this is just poetic justice.

So for those of you saying "There's no story here... Give them time to sort it out, etc..." My response is simply this. "It sucks when you gotta swallow your own medicine doesn't it?"

I guess the rabid GPL fans can dish it out, but they can't take it when they are the ones that stepped on someone else's copyright.
