> (3) The GPL has never been tested in court


note that during this thread there was a note from a contributor
to promise to not sue a potentially infriging use. you should be
careful of such promises, particularly considering that some fsf
licenses include copyright assignment...in which case it will be the
fsf enforcing the gpl, not the original authors (which is the specific
purpose of the assignment). the fsf has a vested interest in showing
that their licenses have teeth, although more in the case of the glp
than in the lgpl.
