As far as legal battle is concerned, you can contact FSF and OSDL defense fund if you really need help as developers. There's also a GPL enforcement mechanism available if need.

The only problem is when it comes to software patent; and in this case it will be harder and you will need to put extra effort to work around the patent at issue.
