No.  All I require is that my name be mentioned somewhere, and it

Why does it matter?  I have a hard time seeing how the miniscule

I also have a hard time seeing anyone ripping us off here in any way

like somebody’s going to be using our code in an embedded system
somewhere and not telling us about it,
