And how do you know? Hint: he didn't sue Apple (BSD based Mac OS X 
which is marketed to consumers at a positive price). Anyway, it's 
not the probability of being ruined that is relevant to the 
Wallace's case. Competition is about grabbing as much of the market 
as possible and ruining (employing lawful means) competitors in the 
process. Wallace appears to believe that the BSD is lawful and that 
the GPL is unlawful. And you just keep misinterpreting his case and 
persistently fail to address his arguments.
