Mikael Pawlo adds more information to the NuSphere/MySQL GPL court fight: "NuSphere responds on Politech to MySQL's claims. 'MySQL AB is interpreting the GPL so broadly
that any commercial software that comes into contact with free software must
also become free. By that standard, a commercial email program would
violate the GPL if it downloaded mail from a GPL-compliant mail server.'
Who's right and who's wrong? Judge Patti B. Sarris is currently arranging a preliminary injunction hearing in Boston to find out."
