<nettime> Ruling NuSphere ./. MySQL


For those of you interested in the first "GNU GPL trial".

Judge Saris has ruled on the preliminary injunction motion in MySQL AB ./.
Progress Software (NuSphere) that Progress Software is enjoined from
marketing products under the MySQL trademarks until trial.

On the matter of Progress' distribution rights under GNU GPL, she has not
granted an injunction. While Progress Software appears to be presently in
compliance with the GNU GPL, there is probably no irreparable harm being
caused to MySQL AB, thus no room for an injunction.

Free Software Foundation has issued a press release:

All the best

Mikael
