Ah, so that means that according to your legal theories, we have a
"joint copyright" situation for those portions, and anybody can take any
parts of Apple's changes and use them without worry, since Apple could
only possibly sue if it managed to get Berkeley interested to sue
together with them, and Berkeley's choice of license made perfectly
clear that Berkeley is not interested much in suing.

Do you really not understand why your theories about the GPL case are so
absurd and don't stand up to real world cases?

It's funny how every time you are shown to be wrong, you holler for
doctors, medications, and retards.  Not to mention drunk judges.

Such a transparent maneuver, and what a pathetic excuse for a smoke
