Kernel treats the kind of issue much more seriously than other projects AFAIK. I once talked to a multimedia developer who told me that in the multimedia encoding/decoding area, they tend not to ask where the encoder/decoder code originates. All they tend to care is that, "ah, I copied the code from project X that appears to claim it open source. If anything goes wrong, that's project X's fault. So I'm fine with that."

Are you saying they misunderstand copyright law and think they can pass liability on to Project X, or that they're only concerned about some kind of fault other than legal?
