That depends, if you put it in a .dll, and the original author is just a
student, or a hobbiest, it's unlikely that you would ever have to prove your
point in court.

But if the original author is a commercial entity that is trying to make
money, or perhaps the FSF that has a point to prove, you might find yourself
in court, with a bunch of expensive lawyers on the other side.
