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)."

The can steal "ideas" from the code, whenever they want to. So it's nonsense to talk about protecting the code. It's one mistake on the OpenBSD side and hate on the other side. Man to man would be the right way, not this childish behaviour!
