Why are Eben Moglen, Brad Kuhn and LWN not saying categorically that there is no infringement? Because they cannot say so without auditing 2.5 MB of headers. All they can say is that there are no reasonable grounds to suspect a problem -- which is what they are saying.
No, they don't say there are no reasonable gorunds to suspect an infringement. Brad Kuhn and LWN explicitly admit the possibility of a copyright infringement. Eben Moglen tried to beat around the bush.
All anyone can reasonably do is fix problems once they are alerted. [...] But you, sir, have not demonstrated ANY problem that needs fixing
I believe the Naughton paper provides indications that there is a need for fixing. Have you even read it in its entirety? I mean the paper, not just the Huffington Post article?
