I just enjoyed the prominent comment of Jon on the frontpage of LWN:

| Leading items and editorials
| Interesting court cases is the theme of the week. Some LWN readers
| have been heard to grumble that we spend too much time on licensing
| and legal issues. Perhaps that is true, but these issues are
| crucial: free software is very much at the mercy of the legal
| environment in which it operates. The law can either help free
| software's success, or it can make free software illegal and
| impractical.
