Stephen Shankland writing on ZDNet says:
Dan Ravicher, SFLC's attorney on the case, said the suit isn't part of a broader effort to give GPL enforcement a stronger legal foundation. But the action has repercussions for a much larger audience than just the single defendant.
"There still appear to be flaming examples of either indifference to or outright disregard for the GPL," said James Harvey, an attorney with Hunton & Williams who is not involved with the suit. "I think those flaming examples will increasingly be called to order by somebody, whether SFLC, a copyright holder or someone else in the open-source ecosystem."
