Sorry to jump backward in the thread, but even the code Linden Lab
distributes has multiple copyright claims to it, because the contributor
agreement does not remove the rights of the original author to enforce
copyright infringement claims.

So you could be sued by anyone that has ever had a patch accepted by
Linden Lab if you infringe on the copyright by violating the terms of
the GPL.  I don't think anyone would, but you never know.
