Ivan,

The DBpedia project is not the work of Freie, it's the work of the 
Linking Open Data (LOD) Community (a SWEO Project as described from day 
one). There are many individuals involved in this collaboration.

I am somewhat perturbed about this Freie concern.

Remember, this whole thing runs of a Virtuoso instance in our labs which 
was offered as part of our commitment to this effort under the auspices 
of SWEO.

If someone as said something to raise these alarms, please let me know 
whom etc..
