SubjectRe: Yes: The linux devs can rescind their license grant. GPLv2 is a bare license and is revocable by the grantor.

I have not made legal mistakes, pompous programmer a__hole*.

A gratuitous license, absent an attached interest, is revocable at will.

This goes for GPLv2 as used by linux, just as it goes for the BSD
license(s).
The only entities who have, with regards to BSD, an attached interests
are perhaps those companies who pay for its development. Non-gratis
(paying) customers
may have some refuge under consumer protection statutes, for current
versions they have
in their posession, paid for by good consideration.

Everyone else has NOTHING.
Do you understand that?

In the case of the 1000's of linux copyright holders to whom no
consideration
was given by an entity, and the various BSD copyright holders (read: the
programmers),
who have not ASSIGNED their copyright over to some other entity, there
is
NOTHING to hold them to a promise THEY NEVER MADE.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU F___ING PIECE OF S__T?
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT NEITHER THEY NOR YOU HAVE PROMISED NOT TO ELLECT
TO USE YOUR AS-OF-RIGHT OPTION TO RESCIND YOUR GRATUITOUS LICENSE
REGARDING
YOUR WORK.

One cannot rely on a promise that was never made, additionally many of
them
were never paid consideration for this non existant promise either.


*(Note: I am both a programmer and an attorney, so I know the type)
