An anonymous reader writes: Given heavy prior coverage, Slashdotters may enjoy reading the SFLC's three papers: one that analyzes the history of Linux's ath5k code (derived from OpenBSD's ar5k), one that gives advice for GPL/ISC license collaboration, and one that talks about the legal issue of copyrightable originality. These papers should put to rest the acrimony and arguing about the OpenBSD-ar5k-derived ath5k driver in Linux. A patch has also been submitted that makes sure all the copyright holders are credited. The story has been covered on Linux Watch, ZD Net, Groklaw, LWN, and the OpenBSD Journal.
