Apple Apple has bought the CUPS code base, and has hired it's lead developer. "CUPS was written by Michael R Sweet, an owner of Easy Software Products. In February of 2007 Apple Inc. hired Michael and acquired ownership the CUPS source code. While Michael is primarily working on non-CUPS projects, he will continue to develop and support CUPS, which is still being released under the existing GPL2/LGPL2 licensing terms."

Oh, to debunk your nonsense claims about GCC and LLVM even further: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2005-11/msg00888.html

Quote: "I (Chris Lattner, Apple employee) personally believe that the LLVM community would agree to assign the copyright of LLVM itself to the FSF"

See, Apple even supports the idea of turning LLVM into a FSF project under the GCC umbrella.
