Legal In France, the GPL has scored yet another major win in court. What makes this infringements case special is that it was filed not by the developers of the infringed-upon code, but by users, demonstrating that they, too, can successfully enforce the GPL. Since I noted on a few threads here on OSNews that a lot of people still fail to grasp the difference between an open source license and an EULA, I figured I'd take this opportunity to explain the difference one more time - using hand-crafted diagrams!

Mr. Holwerda,
If I lived in your neighborhood, I would bring you a six pack of whatever beer you liked. That was a nice, clean, succint explanation of the difference between Open Source Licenses and eulas. Thank you for a job well done.

I prefer a real Martini - as in, just the Martini Bianco [1]. Tall long drink glass, 1/3-1/2 filled, no ice, no lemon. You can wake me any time for that.
