Heh, when people come here (lm_sensors mailing list) with legal questions,
we reply "talk to your attorney".  Otherwise, there's really only a few
questions that any of us programmers could answer:

Q: Who owns copyrights to lm_sensors?
A: Many different people (including me)

Q: How is lm_sensors licensed?
A: Like this: http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/browse.cgi/i2c/COPYING

Q: Is lm_sensors available by any other license?
A: Only if you track down all the copyright owners and get permission,
	i.e. good luck with that

(And just in case: if someone else gives you a contact, that contact does
not speak for me.)

I hope that's helpful; regards,
