Red Hat recoups losses from GPL conspiracy (with other co-conspirators
in predatory priced IP that is meant to kill competition) by higher 
prices of their subscription service contracts.

"A plaintiff must prove (1) that the prices complained of are below an 
appropriate measure of its rival's costs and (2) that the competitor 
had a reasonable prospect of recouping its investment in below cost 

Wallace is a sure winner on the merits as well, AFAICS.
