  So you are saying his diff, a <= 50% diff, is not copyright-able?

As well, he cannot add his license to his diff?

I think that is what he asked. IOW, Mr. BSD Coder's 1000 line driver is BSD licensed. I come along, add a comma, make a diff, add the GPL to my comma-diff. I can't do that you say?

So a solution be for the GPL developers to add the GPL to their diffs is moot?
