Are the public insinuations that there's code theft after it's been explained many times really necessary?

First, my apologies for posting that in-thread. I intended to send you a PM. I will be more careful in the future.

Second, I think you answered my question. You could always move on to something more productive.

Actually Brian is one of the most productive in the community. Has to be said.

This is straw man. I didn't know that someone wrote about a code theft. :?

I took the trouble, unlike you, to find similar or identical function calls, similar directory structure used in time of compiling in dynamically linked shared object library of Waze GPL and closed-source clients and expressed a doubt. That's all. If you have better information based on your own research, just share them.

e.g. insinuating code theft. You continue to ignore the fact that relicensing is allowed to willfully perpetuate this insinuation.

IF the code was forked from Ehuds version or the licence was changed at that time. Copyright and licencing is a very touchy subject at the best of times!

This is argumentum ad hominem. Again I remind you if you have better information just present it. It's more constructive than continue writing something I never wrote and even never meant.

Regards relicensing, it seems you you totally forgot the "infectiousness" of GPL. If you want a use a GPL code in closed source project, you must ask and relicense every piece of code, every patch, from every developer who worked on it before. As every version, branch or a fork is GPL again and again until someone comes and rewrites it from beginning. And if the source code isn't stable hosted on a CVS system for long time, it is quite difficult to detect appropriate parts of the submitted patches from different developers as these changes are quite atomic. Actually it is often better to start with a complete rewrite from scratch if you have learnt and have knowhow.

No you did as your intent is clear. You've presented nothing but speculation and accusation. It is up to YOU to support YOUR claims, and you have not done so.

You seem to have a mistaken belief about how the GPL works in regards to *your own code*. It specifically allows you to relicense at will *your own code* regardless of it having been previously under the GPL.

You finally acknowledged one of the points I brought up as to why there is no problem.

Please don't shout and be constructive. It looks like you have some kind of unofficial information that the Waze team relicensed code from all previous developers of RoadMap.
