You have made this claim many times, and asserted various lawyers have 
told you it is true.  Please explain the details.  The GPL and LGPL 
specifically cover source code, * not* algorithms.  How can the act of 
reading *GPL source code expose you to liability, any more than reading 
a novel can prevent you from writing your own?
