Well, as a PHB who's also a Linux lead, the way I read the letters is that
as soon as they found out they couldn't pin anyone down to commit to not
selling slices of their client's pie and not giving any more of it away
than was already the case, they wanted a name change. I thought the
attitude was quite refreshing after seeing decades worth of threatening
I presume that's because of instruction from the client, not because of
the benevolent character of the law firm.
