Whoa ... If Joerg wrote this driver from scratch he can put any kind of
licensing he wants on it. Just because it doesn't fit the notion of "Free
Software" as defined in a pure GPL license, doesn't mean there aren't users
willing to live with his licensing terms, even if it requires building
kernels, etc. specifically for Amateur Radio. I don't care for the
licensing terms of most of the software I use, but I make a decision whether
I can "live" with them and then use or don't use the software accordingly.
Deleting it is not the answer.
