OpenBSD OpenBSD 3.9 has now officially been released. Improvements were made accross the board. There's a detailed changelog, an errata page, and of course a download section. If you want to support OpenBSD, buy a CD set.

"http://openbsd.org/faq/faq3.html#ISO"

Please read the BSD License.

"any OpenBSD ISO images available on the Internet either violate Theo de Raadt's copyright or are not official images."

These images are _not official_ images.

"copyright infringing iso"

Please read carefully again, what you cited above.

You don't quite understand do you? The format of the ISOs is not BSD licensed. This discussion has nothing whatsoever to do with the BSD license. The format for the ISOs is copyrighted by Theo. It's almost certain that these cds were made using that format layout or they wouldn't even boot properly. I have read the FAQ many, many times, thank you. If you're wondering why I'm typing in short simple sentences, it's because you obviously need it.

"The format for the ISOs is copyrighted by Theo."

All right. They does'nt use the original copyrighted layout (unoffical).

They created an ISO image from a couple BSD licenced stuff (kernel and userland stuffs). With mkisofs (Theo owns the El Torito specification's rights? I dont think so.). They have the right to do this.
