Expect a settlement in Monsoon GPL suit

Filed under
OSS
Legal

I was sent a link to a Hava support thread on the issue, which was still online at this writing. The thread makes it clear that the facts of the case are on the side of GPL advocates, and that many people are checking the tools they get, looking for GPL violations.

The most recent note on the thread, posted just yesterday by GaryMM in MyHava support, reads:

Don’t worry kids, we’re taking care of it. It is all matter of course for such things, there is no conspiracy involved. I have said it before and will say it again, we have every intention of complying with the terms of GPL.

That doesn’t read like a company spoiling for a fight, or in much of a legal position to win one.
