Submission + - Why The GPL Will Lose In Court Every Time 1

talledega500 writes: An interesting comment on the potential first GPL case in terms of legal remedies available and also an analysis of the overstepping of software licenses in general due to the notion that people can fashion whatever license they want and yet somehow expect existing law to back them merely because there was a license.
