    Apparently there are non-computer cases that can be cited in regards to spirit of the licenses being followed and that being enough for juries...don't ask. I'm going off of fuzzy memory here.
    Yeah, that'd be really interesting honestly ...

    GPL's stricter requirements have been court-tested in the US. E.g., (in general, I can see GPL going to court a lot more than BSD 3 clause ).

    CDDL hasn't been, TTBOMK
