LOL. Sure it is different. But that has nothing to do with your idiotic 
theory of ""Answer of Complaint" has to include one detail: whether 
the defendant has chosen to avail himself of the GPL as a license or 
not.  If he says "not", the GPL is not an issue in the case. And the 
defendant has a lousy stance explaining what he is doing with the 
software in the first case. If he says "yes, I use the GPL", he has 
a lousy stance explaining what he is doing ignoring the terms of the 
license."
