Brad Kuhn of Software Freedom Law Center on GPL Violations

Interesting post urging moderation in reporting and acting on GPL violations.  It’s great to hear this coming from an influential source like SFLC.  Most violations really are ad hoc oversights or the result of companies not sufficiently developing their own open source policies or educating their engineers about those policies.  Most offenders who find out about a GPL violation do try to address it in good faith.  Free software is about cooperation, not gotchas.
