MySQL's case/claim *regarding the GPL* was a contract case, NOT
COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. MySQL complained about other non-contract (tort)
matters as well in addition to the GPL contract claim.

Judge Saris was not supposed/allowed to rule sua sponte that certain
provisions of the GPL are unenforceable and she simply denied the plea
for injunction regarding alleged breach of the GPL on other grounds.

(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.)
