Around 2 years ago, I looked at some details of the FS design and
discussed the copyright issue with one of my attorneys.
Today, I would like to make the following (maybe closing) words before
somebody says I would block a development:
1. In general, there is a copyright for every protectable work done by a
person in the moment of its publication, but in practice it is hard to
prove, specifically in such a technical case. I will not go into the
legal details.
Said this, at least I reject my claims, but still think that generally
it would by a constructive measure if even ideas are referenced in
relation with open source hard- and software.
In my case it led to the situation that I have stopped to publicate
ideas, with some very few exceptions.
2. In particular respectively from the point of view of the software
design, the implementation is virtually what I have proposed (as well).
Indeed, there are some interesting details and elegant paraphrases.
3. I think it would be interesting to analyze how well this FS works
respectively to compare this FS with databases that implement something
surprisingly similar.
