A crucial and foundational legal finding that establishes violation of open source licenses is not acceptable and that penalties relate to the worth of the work and not the selling price or revenues of the author.
This is a very important finding indeed. VoIP applications are information services and thus not subject to the access charges that telecoms services have to pay in the US. Could have far reaching repercussions if upheld and repeated in other areas, even the demise of the telco industry as we know it.
I am speechless. Who could possibly have imagined this even two years ago, let alone a decade ago when we started the work that became ODF.
Not that this is terribly relevant to me, but the visualisations in this article are great (and perhaps a little surprising). Those sliders under the graphs are live, drag them.
