It's also telling that the SCO/IBM copyright case disaster (that is still
dragging on) happened over the "just by writing code and handing it over"
managed Linux kernel rather than any of FSF-maintained software.
This statement is so dishonest, it's mind-boggling.
Could you, as a guest, please go back to some other site, where you come from, and troll there?
It sounds like an honest mistake to me. Cases like this usually involve someone accidentally contributing someone else's code. Like an employee does it without the employer's knowledge because the employee doesn't know creates liability. More formal contribution regimens prevent that.
That wasn't an element of the SCO case, but the case was fairly complex, and I wouldn't hold it against someone for misremembering it that way.
