SFLC Finds One New GPL Violation Per Day

frogstar_robot Re:The GPL Needs a Damages Clause (187 comments)

Damages are for a court to decide. To be sure, EULAs and licenses may contain boilerplate specifying violation penalties but it doesn't necessarily follow that they can be enforced. One of the design goals of the GPL is to be valid in as many jurisdictions as possible. Including a damages cause would weaken that. It may be contrary to it's designers' strategies as well. Both the SFLC and FSF have said that most GPL violations are resolved quietly.

Groklaw Explains Microsoft and the GPLv3

frogstar_robot Re:What Microsoft said... (349 comments)

All I'm saying is that Jackson's misdeeds don't automatically mean that MS' activities in the US are Simon pure or that the government didn't have a case. I was actually quite annoyed at Jackson because I believe MS should have been MaBelled to the dogs and back and his screw up foreclosed any chance of that happening.
