due to her "if it turns out Terekhov is behind attacks on the GPL" paranoia.

No doubt about that. But why is this of any importance? What does it matter 
what a software engineer from Baden Württemberg thinks about GPL enforcement? 
Do you know something about him that I don't? "

Do we know anything that you don't?

Just that he is one of the most prolific (and successful) people at enforcing
the GPL in court. Probably even more so than the FSF. (Note that the FSF prefer
to settle out of court. I think Harald does too, but living in Germany he's much
more trigger-happy about getting injunctions, as he has to be because of the
peculiarities of German law.)

Cheers,

I think you are not understanding each other.
I think he meant Terekhov. 

He is only significant if it turns out he's
behind things like Psystar and Dan Wallace's
equally failed attack on the GPL. "

PJ, don't you think that Terekhov is behind Versa-Bosch-Humax-Western
Digital-Samsung attack on the GPL as well?

See 1:09-cv-10155-SAS Software Freedom Conservancy, Inc. v. Best Buy Co., Inc.
et al.

Versa:

"On information and belief, Defendant alleges that Plaintiffs’ claims are
barred, limited and/or excluded on the grounds that the alleged license at issue
in this case and/or certain provisions contained therein are illegal,
unconscionable and barred by public policy as well as by statutory and case
law."

Bosch:

"The GNU General Public License, Version 2, as alleged by Plaintiffs, is
not enforcable."

Humax:

"Plaintiffs are not entitled to the relief sought because their actions
constitute a misuse of the copyright."

Western Digital:

"Plaintiffs claims are barred by the first sale doctrine."

"Plaintiffs’ claims for relief are barred by the First Sale
doctrine."

Samsung:

"As a further, separate and distinct Ninth Affirmative Defense to the
Complaint and each claim for relief alleged therein, Defendant alleges that
Plaintiffs’ claims are barred by the doctrine of copyright misuse. Defendants
are informed and believe, and on that basis allege, that Plaintiffs’ claims are
barred because Plaintiffs have used the alleged copyrights at issue in this case
to engage in anticompetitive behavior under United States law."

"As a separate and distinct Twelfth Affirmative Defense and each claim for
relief alleged therein, Defendant alleges that Plaintiffs’ claim for copyright
infringement is barred under at least the provisions of 17 U.S.C. § 109(a), as
Defendant was licensed and any copies alleged to be infringing were, therefore,
lawfully made." "
