You are not the Copyright holder - I am!
As you are not the Copyright hilder, your personal belief is not important.....
There are of course Copyright violations and as you cannot influence them, it
does not make sense to give you more information on the specifics of the
Copyright violations. These informations have been given to the people who are
reponsible for the Copyright violation.
You are just the downstream of a hostile upstream that created the fork.
If you (suse) however continue to distribute the code although you have been
informed about the problem, you may be sued because of the Copyright violation.
I am disappointed to see that you try to deny the fact of a copyright violation
without giving _any_ information on what your "decision" was based.
Anyway, if you are showig good will with fixing the current problem by starting
to distribute the legal original software again, I may give you some time to
recover from the mistake of switching to the illegal fork.
