The court will ignore what the GPL says and instead rely on

prevailing federal and state law.

steep penalties a settlement will be agreed to.  The settlement?
Follow the GPL.

The settlement agreement will, of course, be an agreement to pay
Cisco's attorney fees and require the SFLC to voluntarily dismiss
their silly propaganda suit -- same as always.

Nothing short of review by a court will settle the legal
enforcability of the GPL. The SFLC will NEVER, NEVER voluntarily
allow a federal district judge to interpret the GPL on the merits.
