    I'd be surprised if any such clauses in an EULA are actually legal in any European country, I think they are just void. With regard to the US, that country has unfortunately been taking over by corporate lawyers, it's almost like fascism.

    That's not the point. The point is that they have this policy.

    This is just a bit extreme in regards to kernel module. Linus would never knowingly except fascism. Likely, this possibility has already discussed and analyzed in the kernel team to the maximum extent.

    Politics in the US, fluctuates with every generation. Think of it like the Linux kernel, with an unstable ABI. If there really was some kind of corporate take-over, this whole Occupy movement wouldn't even exist.
