Spoken by someone who has no understanding of what legal
processes are really like. Lawsuits are slow and arduous
and expensive. That's just the nature of the legal system,
and it's difficult to see how it could be otherwise, since
each side needs to be able to present its case and respond
to the other side, and legal papers don't write themselves,
and not overnight.

The outcome of Jacobsen v. Katzer is a victory for open licenses,
since CAFC and the District Court on remand held that violating
license conditions for copying and distribution is copyright
