Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community.

Yes, but if the sole purpose of the kernel module is to load the binary blob, then how is it really any different?
That's like a hired killing; the person who ordered the kill is just a guilty as the killer himself.
At least that's the way I think the Law would see it.
