If it is indeed an abuse of the license terms, as you've purported, it
would be wise to get their input on this, as Gyan Doshi has elaborated
above. They are contributors to this project, and it falls to reason that
the burden of addressing this falls on them.

Moving forward with such drastic steps only portrays arrogance , which is
uncalled for. I've seen contributors here deal with the likes of Amazon
(the recent NGCodec patch license issue comes to mind) and had that issue
resolved in an amicable manner. So why can't the same be done with Newtek?
