Groklaw is carrying an English translation
of this German-language interview with Harald Welte
of the Netfilter team. The topic of interest is Netfilter's ongoing efforts to ensure that its GPL licensing is respected.
"The idea is to publicly make known some high-profile cases in order to put the opposition, those thinking of violating the GPL, on notice that we are serious and that we mean what we say and will enforce the license in court if you violate its terms. The idea is that then it will prevent having to handle lots of little cases, once the word is out.
