I think it is an obvious and predictable victory, but still an
important one as it has a court establishing that the GPL is _not_
the same as public domain. This is obvious, but many trolls have
asserted that it is so loudly and so frequently for so many years
that they have actually convinced many members of the public.

Wow, I an unaware of those loud and frequent "troll" arguments
claiming that GPL licensed code is public domain. Could you provide
links to some of those arguments?

Is it possible you have created a straw man argument in the absence of
a real "victory"?
