Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. and J. K. Rowling vs. RDR Books (575 F.Supp.2d 513) is a copyright lawsuit brought on 31 October 2007 by the media company Warner Bros. and Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling against RDR Books, an independent publishing company based in Muskegon, Michigan. Lawyers for Rowling and Time Warner argued that RDR's attempt to publish for profit a print facsimile of The Harry Potter Lexicon, a free online guide to the Harry Potter fictional universe, constituted an infringement of their copyright and was not protected by the affirmative defense of fair use. The trial was held from 14–17 April 2008 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. In September 2008, the court ruled in Rowling's favor, and publication of the book was blocked.

In many large cities, tap water tastes like you are drinking out of a sewer. NYC is probably the most famous example, but it is also true elsewhere.
Um, what? Someone is actually selling bottle NYC tap water and people love it. Check out this article. Here's a choice quote:
Michael Saucier, a spokesman for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, notes that the city's water beat 150 other municipal water systems in New York state in a taste test last summer.
some just want a solid cable that will last for 20 years
If you want a cable you're frequently moving around to last for ages, you probably don't want a "solid" one. Stranded wire will be less likely to break.
Why would Sony make a move which would lead to *fewer* sales because a competitor "complained"?
Tomato was the only firmware I could get to be stable on a WRT54GL. It was a rock though. Give it a look.

I worry about liability. While the GPL and other licenses can disclaim liability all they like, a litigious user could still file a lawsuit, forcing the developer to spend money defending themselves. I have a Firefox extension that I've avoided releasing for exactly that reason.
What you're describing is a "plurality."
Majority: More than half (50%) of some group
Plurality: A number of votes for a single candidate or position which is greater than the number of votes gained by any other single candidate or position voted for, but which is less than a majority of valid votes cast.
