IFW is obviously in posession of *ALL* the facts regarding this matter. Hence we should bow down to his superior knowledge, especially as he is also some kind of bigshot lawyer and legal expert.
Strange though, that selling somebody elses code, (that has copyright, when the issue of authorisation is in question) has NOTHING to do with copyright according to IFW. Wow, there must be some strange copyright laws where IFW comes from...
As usual, it seems that rumour and suspision take the place of cold, hard facts, but are presented by uninformed third parties as such. Personally I think that uninformed gossip is a shameful thing, probably as bad as anything H & P may or may not have done.
