Default Petition - google, leave cyanogen alone

i am sure you have all read the news.... google sending cyanogen a cease and desist order

please cast ur vote in this thread as a petition

for anyone who doesnt quite get it, google is threatening the future of custom ROM development...not just cyanogens ROMs
you wanna keep using ur favorite custom ROM? let google know they cant push these guys around

although they cant stop us making roms, they want us to stop including google propriatory apps

I don't think they can do anything about it, they don't know where he lives.

Won't this affect all roms?
If this scenario plays out, we will have a mess on our hands.
Why did the even bother to issue and distribute developer phones?
Maybe I just don't understand.
