Travelling to a related court hearing tomorrow 

Tomorrow morning I'll have the pleasure of travelling to Frankfurt,
where the first court hearing in a particular case
will happen. 

Those of you who follow my actions closely (closer than the practically
non-existing PR work of allows) will notice that this
is actually the first 'regular court case'. So far we settled everything
either out-of-court, or sooner or later after a preliminary injunction,
or an appeals case thereof. 

In this particular case the defendant claims that the GPL is not
applicable to them for a number of reasons, but at the same time argues
that he still has the right to use the software, despite not having
obtained any kind of license. 

I don't yet wan to disclose the identity of the defendant yet, but I'll
certainly post some more information on this pretty soon. You will all
know the company, though. A very popular vendor of embedded networking

No follow-up yet. So stay tuned. 

Harold, Harold. [sic], [sic].
