Hilarious.  So now TSG admits that the GPL is valid and enforceable again?
Right into the trap.

And note the "thousands" (in other places "hundreds of thousands") of lines
of "misappropriated" code.  So where is the copyright infringement claim?

IBM will demolish most of it in their reply.  The rest they will use
against TSG, which itself previously distributed all the material that it
claims IBM was not authorized to distribute under the GPL.  Their ludicrous
claim that they did so unknowingly has already been demolished.  TSG will
be forced to choose between admitting that it breached the GPL or that it
licensed the material in question under the GPL.
