    SubjectRE: Dell vs. GPL

    "entitles", again take that to court as the third party.

    Hell I can not get back my sources from companies and I own copyright.
    Oh and it usually takes a letter of discovery, and time for them to wash
    the materials away. I have one advantage over the rest, I can do media
    forensics and recover erased data and materials.

    I am finding out just how impossible it is to enforce GPL, because we all
    believe in the idea and concept but execution to maintain its existance is
    not easy nor are the processes simple. If Dell has a reason to exploit
    GPL and can defend it for a while to gain a market edge they are fools not
    to do so. Time to Market is the key, and there is no means to date for
    the maintainers of today and yesterday to receive compensation for such
    violations. Obviously when money is involved
    people/organizations/corporations tend to do wacky things and then
    apologize later.

    So please list for me all the briefs, rulings, filings where GPL has set a
    legal position to make hold its claim to promote and FORCE openness.
