"It's also completely irrelevant; I'm disappointed that johill brought it up."

As long as you are not *surprised* someone brought it up. It is a rare occasion that a product using Linux is discussed on LWN without a sub-thread about the GPL and derived work.

Have there been any concrete court decisions in this field lately? I am tired of hearing peoples unprovable interpretations of a derived work. I would love to know what a derived work really is, but have searched far and wide with no solid answers.

Agreed, as soon as I hear the words "derived work" my mind blanks out. I have heard so many different opinions on derived work my head immediately begins to swell up upon hearing those words.

In this case it is irrelevant, your point was taken.
