Florian, you are just being freaking ridiculous here. You have yet to state an actual cause for action, but you post again and again and AGAIN, in every Android thread, screaming about possible infringement. I mean, you've actually used the term 'copyright laundering' with a straight face.
Here's the deal. If you think there's infringement, prove that there's infringement. It'll take a hell of a lot of work. But that's the ONLY basis from which you can be making those kinds of claims
Your current claim seems to amount to this: certain specific people aren't stating with absolute certainty that there's no infringement. Therefore, there must be infringement. This is stupid.
- They don't want to do all that digging in header files they didn't author; they don't want to do the work any more than you do.
- Even if they did all that work, and then registered the strong opinion that there was no infringement, it wouldn't matter, because they don't have standing to make that determination.
- Only the people who wrote the headers can make an infringement claim. And if they don't care, if they've released the headers under a permissive license, then there is no issue. Only their opinion is important. Bradley Kuhn's and Jake Edge's are entirely irrelevant.
- Yet, you insist on screaming that because unrelated people without legal standing won't put many hours of work into analyzing headers, that means Android is untrustworthy.
This is called "pushing an agenda", Florian. You look like a paid astroturfer to me.
