Once judge and defendant have pared down the applicable law to figure
out the question of standing conclusively.  That might mean moving the
SFLC out of the process eventually.  But it is sort of a race condition
since that is pretty much the same time when the defendant gets a clue
that he has nothing left to gain when not settling and coming into
compliance.  Many copyright owners will gladly agree to have the case
settled against a payment to the SFLC or the FSF in the function of a
designated charity.

Most certainly the SFLC does not need to read the outpour of
self-proclaimed legal amateurs in this newsgroup in order to plan their
course of action.

They have a quite better track record at predicting legal cases than the
most vociferous know-alls here.
