Comment Re:Programmers != Lawyers (Score 1) 464

It is sensible to take a dispute to the court system when other methods of resolving it have failed. In this particular case, taking the matter to the courts at this point in time seems grotesquely premature. The principle of preserving liberty via the law is key to the GPL and other licenses, but that general principle by no means implies the courts are the only, or even preferred method for doing so. An individual who looks for opportunities to create disputes and then leverages their position by dragging the matter into court as soon as possible hardly seems to me to be a true friend of liberty.
