GPL to be tested in court (maybe)



NuSphere Sued for Breaking GPL

Relations between NuSphere and MySQL have come a cropper.

MySQL AB, the Swedish software house that developed the MySQL
database, has terminated its distribution arrangement with
NuSphere. NuSphere says it can?t.

NuSphere is suing MySQL for breach of contract and MySQL has
countersued for trademark infringement, slapping NuSphere with a
secondary, but very incendiary, claim of breaking the GPL.
