The TurboLinux Japanese page simply says they are licensing David from SpecOps
Labs and that it is partially based on Wine.

Following the link to SpecOpS Labs, I read the fine print at the bottom of this

It sounds like there is hardly an issue here (provided they do as they say)...
move along, nothing to see here. :)
