I am not sure how to read this, logic wise. A private Individual appears to be talking to the P96 authors in an attempt to take sole custody of the rights for P96. The original owners have previously stated that they did not want payment or mind people using the drivers for whatever reason. Gunnar did approach them to try to get licensing for the drivers and offered payment for them. It now appears this Individual is attempting to try to buy the rights. This will affect a lot of older and new hardware if the license if rigourously defended by a new owner.
It will also have the knock on affect to drive developers to design new drivers that cannot be construed as being created from the P96. May be this Individual will identify himself and let people know his plans? (The email is not a fake btw)
