Now we've drifted into the absurd. What are the supposed damages in this hypothetical case?
In the historical conflict between open and closed source, the case for damages is clear: if
Hacker's GPL code is swiped by Meglocorp and ships as a (closed-source) component in a
Meglocorp product, the revenues from that product are (arguably) damaging Hacker. But when
all of the components are open source, I don't really see the case for damages -- how could a
Linux copyright holder possibly be harmed by the presence of another open source component in
the same address space? This is not a theoretical point, by the way: if there are no
damages, there is no tort.
