Not being able to use wikipedia is little strong, don't you think so?
What's next?

Are you saying Shem told you he violated some contracts?

Ok, so can you tell us the details, so that we can evaluate this
ourselves, and (more importantly) so that he can defend himself? He
seems willing to point where specific pieces of code come from.

Right. So why do you care if this code goes into kernel? Your contract
is not violated, and neither me nor you signed any contract preventing
us from putting that code into kernel.

If you know the details, can you tell us which/whose contract is being
violated here? Maybe we can just get permission of those parties. Or
maybe your information is wrong...

If you know this, please share details.

I'll talk to lawyers if I have to. I'd like to understand this.
