The FSF was not happy with Judge Saris.

Here's free advice right from the "GPL Compliance Lab" (my what a bunch
of pompous lunatics):

<quote copyright=Free Software Foundation, 2004>

Don't go to court

 FSF hasn't.
 Court is expensive
 Judges don't understand technology
   "Is static linking like two icons on one desktop?"
       -Judge Saris, MySQL v. Nusphere oral argument


Translation: the FSF doesn't really believe that they could fool a judge
into buying (hint: the GPL lost miserably in MySQL v. Nusphere/Progress)

Legal notes

Static linking creates a derivative work through textual copying

Most dynamic linking cases involve distributing the library

Still a derivative work:

Dynamic linking

Distributing only the executable (testtriangle)

Still a derivative work:

Distributing the source code of software which links to a library

[end textual copying]

GNU-ish "legal notes" idiocy.


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
