xvid vs. Sigma vs. the world.
Yesterday, Sigma was accused of stealing GPL'd code for it's product, and today they're opening up the source for the alleged product. This is very interesting, it's the first time I can remember where somebody put thier code under the GPL after violating it. Now, the only thing that disappoints me is that I would like to see how the GPL fares in court, I think the legal scrutiny would provide for some fascinating, as yet undiscovered, insights into copyright.
