Quote:
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has issued an opinion in which Judge Easterbrook declares, "[t]he GPL and open-source have nothing to fear from the antitrust laws." The case is called Wallace v. IBM., No. 06-2454. [Download a copy of the opinion.] Internet Cases covered the lower court's decision from last December here.
<snip>
Calling the defendants "conspirators" in violation of the Sherman Act didn't advance the plaintiff's case either. Instead of being a restraint on trade, the court held that the GPL serves to foster creativity, by enabling the free distribution and building of new derivative works.

LMAO. Take that Wallace! Maybe he shouldn't have employed his dog Gromet as his legal counsel.
According to his logic nothing should ever be allowed to be free if somebody else can sell it. - What a Wally. Mit den Augen rollen

Teach a man to fish and you'll ruin a marvelous business opportunity"
