Javi Mali is a total different story.
There is nothing to be protective about. Your company is not the original author. Most stuff was ripped of because the driver already existed or was based on other people work. I will cut you some slack cause you are here and you are being shitstormed for stuff you are not personally responsible for (fall guy).
I will give you the benefit of the doubt although I think it will just stay an empty promise. I hope you will prove me wrong. Until then I stand by my opinion to not buy shitty GPL breaking vendor devices.
