- This ranks up there with Barnes and Noble citing really cheesy 70's British Sci Fi ( much cheesier even than The Doctor attacking himself with a prop tentacle or a prop 6' space locust ) as prior art in the rebuttal to Microsoft's outlandish patent claims.
Except, that wasn't an amicus brief, it was a response from the defendant. They also cited 2001 and lots of stuff broadcast before Microsoft existed. It was brilliant.
Anyway, read Masnick's entire article, it's worth it. Then read the brief as Masnick didn't quote all the fun parts.
"Apparently because Plaintiffs’ delicate sensibilities were offended, they clutched their pearls and filed this suit."
Bob has so much indignant entitlement.

Good analysis of the recent Artifex ruling. It does not uphold the GPL or count as precedent. It does reiterate there are potential merits to Artifex' case and also give credence to GPL as an enforceable contract. It also says contract monies are not necessarily the only revenues associated with making software freely available. Several layers of appeal are still available, but it's a quite favorable lower court ruling
