GPL wins another court battle

So much for all those people who insist that the GPL has never been validated in court. The GPL has just been upheld again, in Frankfurt, where D-Link got slapped for breaking copyright law by failing to live up to the GPL.

On September 6, 2006 the district court issued its judgement, confirming the claims by, specifically its rights on the subject-matter source code, the violation of the GNU GPL by D-Link, the validity of the GPL under German law, and D-Links obligation to reimburse for legal expenses, test purchase and cost of re-engineering.
