How are damages determined?
I've heard people (literally - two anti-GPL people at a coffee shop)
throwing out theories that because people were giving their code away for
free, that there were little or no damages.
But, my choice of releasing code under certain terms (the GPL) should in
no way prejudice my ability to license the very same code for money to
another licensee. So how are damages figured for copyright work which
has not been previously sold or licensed for profit?
