Travelling to a related court hearing tomorrow

Tomorrow morning I'll have the pleasure of travelling to Frankfurt, where the first court hearing in a particular case will happen.

Those of you who follow my actions closely (closer than the practically non-existing PR work of allows) will notice that this is actually the first 'regular court case'. So far we settled everything either out-of-court, or sooner or later after a preliminary injunction, or an appeals case thereof.

In this particular case the defendant claims that the GPL is not applicable to them for a number of reasons, but at the same time argues that he still has the right to use the software, despite not having obtained any kind of license.

I don't yet wan to disclose the identity of the defendant yet, but I'll certainly post some more information on this pretty soon. You will all know the company, though. A very popular vendor of embedded networking gear.
