Consider that an Evil Company, say, starting with the letter 'M', could

invariant section on how the original author's coding style resembles
the intelligence of the infamous paper clip. And a cover text that
"Linux Sucks".

Why is this a problem? Seems to me that it is their right to do so, if they make a contribution that nobody else wants to be without, they have earned the moral right to insult the original author.
