The FSF France has announced
an appeals court ruling
upholding the GPL. "In a landmark ruling that will set legal precedent, the Paris Court of Appeals decided last week that the company Edu4 violated the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) when it distributed binary copies of the remote desktop access software VNC but denied users access to its corresponding source code. The suit was filed by Association pour la formation professionnelle des adultes (AFPA), a French education organization.
" It is also interesting that the suit was brought by a group which does not hold copyrights in the software in question.
