Sorry, @rsidd, you just quote very selectively. You cut off your quote right before "you [@bkuhn] admit in your blog post that there may be [an infringement]; Eben Moglen was evasive when ZDNet's SJVN asked; LWN's article above doesn't rule out the possibility." (So some people who should know did issue statements, but they are apparently unsure.)
Your analogy with the beaten wife (maybe could have come up with a less bizarre example anyway) doesn't work. Your position is that until someone with standing acts, "there is no point talking about it". I don't know in which world you operate but that position is neither in line with FOSS community values nor with (which is what my focus here is) the way the world of business operates.
From a FOSS point of view, if something is done that goes against principles that should be defended, then it's wrong and must be called out not only when someone goes to court.
From a business point of view, if a device maker or developer of a major app spends millions of dollars -- possibly MANY millions of dollars --, there has to be a degree of legal certainty that's reasonable under such circumstances. The possibility of any one out of thousands of Linux kernel contributors possibly going to court in some major jurisdiction is an issue to take into consideration before it happens.
