It sounds more than a bit hypocritical given that Google is leveraging other-peoples-code to make Android. I understand the C&D is over the non-open-source bits but that begs the question - why ARE there any non-open-source bits in Android if Google is really pro-open-source? And why would Google even further against the open source grain by issuing a C&D to someone messing with those bits - to make them better. Doesn't this go against the whole idea of using open source / free software in the first place? Doesn't Google owe it's 'life' to open source systems like Linux? Karma FAIL.
