The truth of the matter is that there is no victory for "open source
licenses". "Open source" licenses and "proprietary" are interpreted
using the exact same rules. Each license (contract) is individually
interpreted according to the state common law of contracts.

This was a victory for open licenses because a court upheld
the understanding that if the conditions of the license are
not met, then copying and distributing is infringement. That
this victory may apply to other forms of licenses does not
lessen the victory for open licenses.
