    LINUX=LAWSUIT

    >If the ownership is diluted to the point that a duel license could not be obtained for the product, then it seems that Zog is right.

    No. Each person still owns their portion of code. Each person could still take their portion of code and include it in another, non-gpl work, and *only* that person (the original author of the code) can do so.

    There is still very clear ownership there.

    Yes, a large project like the Linux kernel is owned in parts and pieces by so many people that it would be virtually impossible to track them all down individually, but the individual parts and pieces are very definitely owned by the individuals...therefore, its not communism, and its not just a technicality.
