the same :) 

Copyright is a funny field. Just imagine that ibm
incorporates / distributes commons-net with their
product, and then it comes out
that somebody of contributors  was on employ of some

thus company  has copyright on this code.  so
technically IBM 
and ( much worse ) their customers are  commiting
infringement.  this company lawyers switch their
phasors on "sue"
and start major assault. 

any similarity with SCO/Linux issue is not intentional
