What evidence do you have that the SFLC has ever payed the attorney's
fees for the other side? I'm sure you wish this was true, of course.

The publicly visible part of the settlement, of course, will be that
the GPLed sources are made properly available.

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.

No defendant is ever going to allow a court to settle this on its
merits, since they would lose. That's why they settle and agree to
honor the GPL.
