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 law firms hired by the defendants continue in business in
beautiful, spacious office buildings a fact that may easily be
publicly observed.

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

As part of a settlement agreement, the plaintiffs are paying the
defendants a rather handsome service fee to publish the source code
on the defendants' servers.

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.

No defendant has ever filed a voluntary dismissal to prevent review
on the merits -- they just automatically receive one when they call
the SFLC's bluff. He. He.

That's why they settle and agree to honor the GPL.
