If other distros did see a license problem, it wuld be obvious that they ask me
before changing to a fork that is definitely worse than the original.
Not a single mail from another distro has been send to me, so we may 
safely asume that other distros have just been overpowered but not
convinced by Mr. Bloch...

You did not provide anything relevent, sorry.

I did however explain many times in the public why there is no problem.
I recommend you to read this and reply again _after_ you found a way to send 
arguments that are based on real things that happen inside cdrtools and do not
repeat global unrelated statements from other people.

There is no need to refute obviously wrong claims from Mr. Bloch. 
If you believe his wrong claims, it seems that I cannot help you anyway.
If you are openminded enough, you may try out e.g. the latest Knoppix DVD and
discover that wodim and other libscg based programs published by Mr. Bloch
simply do not work at all (I did try this at Cebit last week on my laptop).

The original cdrtoools however are known to work.
