As the BSD license  is a weak one, it is a moot  point as to where its
code-base would be landing in.  The community has been deprived of its
own efforts,  in all these  instances of the seepage/pilferage  of the
BSD code-base by unethical entities.

It is not  a question of trust in our  little, imperfect world.  Trust
is earned by giving it.

The SCO issue is again teaching us that it is the ethical angle of the
GNU  and its  freedom-enhancing  GNU GPL  which  is going  to lead  us
