Re: Do we need embargoes for GPL compliance issues?

Bet you a dime to a dollar that these same infringing companies are
vigorously opposed to GPLv3 with its much more reasonable termination
clause.  (In GPLv2 your licence is automatically terminated as soon as
you violate.)

I have no sympathy for them at all.  Hoist by their own petard.  Don't
want our bugfixes to the licence ?  Fine, keep the bugs you care about

I don't think Debian is at significant risk even from the trollish
people being discussed here.
