Where is that "open source" bitkeeper client ? The 'No whine license' is not a open source license. If Bitmover was serious about it, they would have used a standard opensource license like BSD or GPL.
The 1999 link is very interesting. It show there is a pattern of difference between advertised licensing and the final license.

Copyright law does not allow licenses to forbid reverse engineering, so there was no license violation in the first place.
