  • However, Cantrill says that Oracle would have a hard time arguing for intellectual rights over the code marked as CDDL in the leak, since at this point Oracle has done little to clarify what's going on.

    Ars Technica

  • Developers on the OpenIndiana discussion group were concerned about whether it was safe to even look at code marked with the CDDL license because of the nature of the release; some believed it was potentially harmful to the open-source community because it presented the possibility of future legal claims by Oracle over intellectual property against open-source versions of the kernel that resembled the copyrighted code.

    Ars Technica

  • While the majority of the code in the archive is marked with the licensing header for the Common Development and Distribution License, there is also a significant amount of code and makefiles covered by Oracle and other companies' copyrights that did not carry the CDDL, as well as older code bearing Sun Microsystem's copyright in a directory of the archive named "closed."
