code. I'm stating that will be what a Open Source license violator will try to
Every time I've been on a call trying to resolve a license violation, the
"$0 selling price" number has been floated. Almost never by a lawyer.
About half the time it takes only a minute or so before the offender's attorney
does the equivalent of kick under the table to shut down that conversation. The
more experienced the attorney, the faster it happens. They never want an offer
of "$0" to be on the record.
I'm actually unclear as to why "$0" is so scary to them. It's
obviously negotiating in bad faith, but bad faith has been pretty much
established by the time the conference call happens. Perhaps someone here knows
case law around the issue.
