The issue is that Wallace vs. FSF is pointless because it didn't get 
past the question of whether it was properly before the court.  All the 
court ruled was that the complaint was articulated such that it could 
constitute a case, had Wallace had standing to try it.  IANAL, but I 
know enough not to point to cases that were dismissed as evidence of 
legal problems.

If you don't mind contacting me off-list to discuss what you don't like 
about Free/Open Source Software in general, I would be happy to discuss 
such things.  However, as this is contributing nothing to this list, I 
would suggest you drop this diversion.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers
