Actually this by itself is not victory. It means that for some period of
time, typically 2-3 years, the vendor did not comply with the GPL.
Victory would mean that the non-complying vendor paid a price for the
period of non-compliance that exceeded the vendor's own idea of the
benefit of not complying. It's quite possible that the vendors who are
sued are paying such a price, but we don't know.
