There is nothing what you have said that demonstrates any violation of copyright. SkyOS is a mostly POSIX compliant OS, so of course a lot of headers and functions are going to be very similar in appearance and structure to those in Linux. It allows for easy porting of Linux/UNIX software, and being a small OS, ease of porting software from other platforms is going to be a major consideration. If you have actually got some hard evidence (eg you have disassembled the OS) that Robert has done something illegal or unethical, then by all means present it, but if you don't, then the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven beyond reasonable doubt should prevail, and you should refrain from making slanderous allegations with nothing more than idle supposition on your part to back them up.
