The guys at would probably good people
to ask. Eben Moglen gave a keynote at 2005 and this sounds
like the sort of thing they like to get involved in. If I understood
correctly, they have large companies paying for them to exist so they
can take on things like this without cost for FOSS software projects.

Of course, that's only if legal counsel is needed and not already
retained. ^_^
