That's the defendants' song right now.  We'll see how much will remain.
It is my guess that in spite of "misuse", "harrassment", "oppression"
and other flowery characterizations, a few weeks after the case closes
down, the GPLed sources will be made available by the defendants, and
our local cranks will celebrate that as a victory of the defendants.
