Submitted by neoflexycurrent
neoflexycurrent (984504) writes "From internetcases: Plaintiff wrote an XML parser and made it available as open source software under the GPLv2. Defendant acquired from another vendor software that included the code, and allegedly distributed that software to parties outside the organization. According to plaintiff, defendant did not comply with the conditions of the GPL, so plaintiff sued for copyright infringement.Defendants moved to dismiss for failure to state a claim. The court denied the motion, finding the GPL to be enforceable."
