Eben Moglen read our agreement and hasn't said a thing about GPLv2 violation. It's abundantly clear that he doesn't think there is any.
Actually, it's entirely possible that there are arguments against the distribution on GPLv2 programs with the "covenant not to sue" attached, but they are better used in the courtroom if Microsoft actually dares to sue someone for a patent violation in a GPLv2 project. Why would Eben Moglen open his cards to Microsoft right now and give them a chance to amend their agreement with Novell?
