	Because they could help with the legal issues of suing D-Link in 
the US on behalf of a person who works on open-source projects and 
who is being seriously abused by them.

	FIRST should probably also be notified, but that's obviously not 
going to change D-Link's behaviour, so I don't see that as being of 
top importance.  D-Link management obviously knows about this issue 
already, and they've decided that it's better to rape and pillage the 
little guy for their corporate benefit.
