    Fortunately, it would take a long flight of imagination to classify
    ndiswrapper as "software that circumvents copyright protections". One
    would have to claim that ndiswrapper is "bundling" itself with non-free
    code and "distributing" that "bundle" from the hard drive into RAM, or
    something just as ridiculous.

    Anyway, I'm glad that the sanity has prevailed for now.
