When was that done in a United States court?

So far, the SFLC has brought several enforcement measures
against copyright infringers of GPL-covered works, and in
every concluded case the defendants have agreed to comply
with the GPL. We have yet to see such a case carried to
judgment, since it's likely that the infringement was due
to carelessness or laziness. We may in fact never see such
a full case, since real companies have lawyers who advise
them against foolishness, while cranks like Daniel Wallace
are incapable of coherence.
