    And there goes my business for a while.

    They really should have a competent human look at these notices BEFORE they go out.

      I really think this company is bad news. They seem to very much have a closed mindset and it's only getting worse. Too bad they basically own the North American smartphone market.

        While the approach and generalization applied here by Qualcomm & helpers is nothing more than a shame do I wonder ... why am I looking at two drunk Mario bros??

        I have never played much games on consoles. What am I missing here?

          While GitHub complied with the request
          Fixed your English.

          Sounds like GitHub are pondering their ultimate response.

            It does look out of place. Maybe Michael is distributing those documents with steganography?

              It seems only fair to remove support for all Qualcomm products from the Linux kernel, x.org and any other piece of free software that supports Qualcomm products.

                Never host anything on US-related services so that tyrant laws do not affect you.
                Hard lesson learned, I guess.

                  Best thing to do is sending them an email using the contact us page, letting them know of your feelings.

                    Check the file name (properties) for hints.
