From my previous post: unfair competition, deceptive business practices, breach of contract,
etc. Depends on the circumstances and parties.

Nobody's trying to create reasons not to port DTrace if that's what you're implying. But
here's the thing: if it isn't clearly legal and moral to snake someone else's code, then it's
only considerate and safe to assume that you can't!
I've been searching for reasons to believe that they're compatible but I haven't found any
clear legal statement from Sun or anyone else, nor even any tiny nugget of estoppel. Did Sun
ever produce the Devleoper's Bill of Rights?
