Got no answer or comment from GNUtians on gnu.misc.discuss ("license 
issue: calling a GPLv2 library" thread in which GNUtians try to scare 
OP into joining the GPL predarory price-fixing pooling conspiracy with 
his computer program which calls a GPLv2 library).

It's fun. Judge Young dismissed because according to him, Wallace "has 
not identified an anticompetitive effect".

And yet his colleague Judge Tinder had no problems with Wallace's 
identification of anticompetitive effect ("By making certain software 
programs available to users at no charge, the GPL may be discouraging 
developers from creating new and better programs because they will 
not receive compensation for their work, thereby reducing the number
of quality programs available to users. This may be considered
anticompetitive effect, and it certainly can be inferred from what
Mr. Wallace alleges in his Third Amended Complaint. Therefore, this
court finds that the Third Amended Complaint states a claim for
violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, under the rule of reason

So one of them must have been drunk (in the sense of having somewhat
distorted view of reality). No?
