Donating 7000 EUR from GPL enforcement to FoeBud e.V.

Sometimes as part of my GPL enforcement work, vendors will make donations in order to settle things like a grace period, i.e. a time where they can still sell their stock of already-produced gpl incompliant devices.

Recently, as part of such a settlement, I was able to get EUR7000 which have been donated to FoeBud e.V., a registered German charity fighting against privacy-invading technology use such as RFID, and video surveillance. They hold the annual "Big Brother Awards" which give a "prize" to those individuals and organizations that hurt privacy and data protection most in that year.
