"Google publishes that code under the Apache licence, but derives it from Linux source protected by the General Public Licence version 2 (GPLv2) claiming to remove all copyrighted components before changing the licence."

I don't follow this. They're saying that they take the GPL-ed Linux source, and strip out all copyrighted parts. Wouldn't that be all of it? The GPL only works because the code is copyrighted to the developers.

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
