As far as I can see, Tridge hasn't touched bitkeeper, so even the tenuous shrinkthrough licence laws don't apply. I don't understand why people keep missing this: Tridge never accepted the bk licence, so nothing in it has any relevance to him. The only issue is whether he should have reverse engineered something that was gifted to the community, knowing LM's propensity for dummy spitting. Considering the usefulness of samba, I think Tridge made a reasonable choice.
