There aren't a lot of lawsuits over software because all 
responsibilities are always disclaimed away anyway - and if there were, 
java would be about the least likely target.  I'm not sure how it is any 
different than software you might have created yourself that could be 
the target of a lawsuit or any other package where you might be included 
as a distributor.

Anyway - as long as the opennms guys have it, it doesn't matter.
