Read again the quoted snipped from the IBM assignment letter, retard.

Was it really that special? How about this part:

"The Foundation agrees that all of its distributions of the Transferred
Work, or of any work "based on the Transferred Work" (that is any work 
that in whole or in part incorporates or is derived from all or part of 
the Transferred Work), shall be under a version of the Foundation's 
General Public License,  Lesser General Public License or Library 
General Public License (collectively "LGPL")."
